Drug Take Back Program
The Kentwood Police Department recognizes the need for community members to have a secure location to safely dispose of unused and/or unwanted prescription medications. We continuously accept unused and/or expired prescription medications at the drop off location in the Kentwood Police Department Lobby located at 4742 Walma Ave SE. You are welcome to bring any unused and/or expired prescription drugs to the lobby for safe disposal during regular business hours, Monday-Friday 9:00am-4:30pm. Please note that we do not accept liquids or sharp objects. We can direct you to locations that do accept these items.
By providing a secure location for medication disposal, we can help in reducing the amount of unused and/or expired prescription drugs from being accidentally, or intentionally ingested by children. Moreover, doing so reduces the likelihood that these drugs will be bought and sold illegally and misused. It additionally reduces disposal into landfills and sewer systems that can be harmful to the environment.
