Year-Round Drug Disposal

Clean out your medicine cabinet and dispose of old, unused, or expired prescription medications at the Lenexa Police Department year-round. This is available in the police station lobby 24/7 and is a great way to safely dispose of those medications to keep them from getting into the wrong hands. 

Please follow these steps when coming to dispose of your medications at the police station.

  • Dump pills from their original container into a re-sealable zipper storage bag. Different pills can be mixed together in the same bag. Empty medication containers can then be disposed of with your regular garbage. 
  • Bring your re-sealable zipper storage bag(s) of medication into the police station lobby 24/7 and contact one of the public service officers who will direct you to the disposal bin. No appointment is necessary. 

Any items that cannot be accepted, as well as excessive packaging, will be returned to you.
