<b> When is the next date of the community collection of unused and expired prescription drugs? </b>

Megan Gilliland, the city’s communications manager, said the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office and the Lawrence Police Department are hosting the next Drug Take-Back Day on Saturday, April 27. Unwanted medications can be dropped off from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at either the short-term parking lot just south of the courthouse, 11th and Massachusetts streets, or at the Lawrence Police Department, 4820 Bob Billings Parkway. Gilliland said coordinators can accept all prescription medications, liquid or pill form, without questions. No illegal drugs or needles will be accepted.
