Sheriff collects over half-ton of expired and unused medications

The Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Office collected more than 1,360 pounds of expired and unused medications on Saturday during the National Take Back Initiative.

The initiative offers Sedgwick County residents a chance to dispose of their unused and unwanted medications in a free and safe way at specified locations across the county to protect from accidental poisoning and safeguard the environment.

The Sheriff’s Office co-sponsored the event in cooperation along with the Drug Enforcement Administration.
