In conjunction with National Drug Take-Back Day, Lee's Summit CARES and the Lee's Summit Police Department have joined with local partners to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means to dispose of unused prescription and over-the-counter medications. Persons can turn in unwanted and expired medications at one of the several drop off locations throughout Lee's Summit. Medications can be accepted in the original bottles, so there is no need to remove labels. Needles and inhalers are NOT accepted. Vape pens will be accepted AFTER the battery has been removed. At each of these locations representatives from the Lee’s Summit Police Department will be on hand to accept the medications and answer questions.

Permanent Collection Sites

Some facilities and businesses are registered with the DEA to collect unused and expired medications.
