On April 28th from 10a-2p the Chanute Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration will give the public an opportunity to safely dispose of unwanted, unused, and expired prescription drugs. It’s the Prescription Drug Take Back Day. Only pills and patches will be accepted. Bring your pills for disposal to the Medicine Shoppe at 421 W. Main St. Simply flush them down the toilet or throwing prescription pills in the trash both pose potential safety and health hazards. If for some reason, you can not make it this day, you can always bring your outdated or unused medication to the Chanute Police Department. They are set up so we can collect them every day of the year.
