The Kent Police Department has a new drop box where residents can dispose of unwanted prescription medications and other similar drugs.
The department installed a drop box behind the police station at 319 S. Water St. this week.
The box lets residents get rid of unused or expired medications anonymously.
- Prescription and over the counter solid dosage medications, i.e. tablets & capsules are accepted.
- Intravenous solutions, injections and needles will not be accepted.
- Illicit substances auch as marijuana or methamphetamine are not part of this initiative.
The drop-off box is a partnership with the Portage County Solid Waste Management District.
