On Saturday, October 24, 2020 the Riley County Police Department in coordination with the Drug Enforcement Administration hosted a drug take-back event at Wal-Mart and the Westloop Dillons in Manhattan. 

The take-back event was a success at both locations. In just four hours, approximately 129.5 pounds of unused or unwanted prescription medications were collected.

We appreciate the public’s participation and thank Wal-Mart and Dillons for providing locations for 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.
