Safely Discard Your Meds!

Do you have a cabinet full of unused and/or expired prescription drugs? Join Tria Health on Saturday, October 26th from 10am to 2pm as we host our first Drug Take-Back Day!

Holding on to unused medications and improperly disposing them can be harmful to your health and our environment. For example, simply flushing pills down the toilet or throwing them in the trash can cause medicinal compounds to pollute our lakes and streams causing negative environmental impacts. National Drug Take-Back Day is a DEA initiative that provides a safe way for patients to dispose of their unused, expired or unneeded prescription and over-the-counter drugs. Officers from the Overland Park Police Department will be onsite to assist in the Drug Take-Back Day.

The event is open to all consumers who would like to safely get rid of their unused medications. Tria Health’s collection site will be located at the corner of Metcalf Avenue and College Boulevard at 7101 College Blvd., Overland Park, KS 66210.
