On Saturday, October 26, 2019 the Riley County Police Department in coordination with the Drug Enforcement Administration hosted a drug take-back event at two locations in Manhattan. 

The take-back event was a success at both locations. In just four hours, approximately 173 pounds of unused or unwanted prescription medications were collected.

We appreciate the public’s participation in the event. Proper disposal of medications at take-back events help to prevent pill abuse and theft by providing a place to safely dispose of prescription drugs.
