Macon Police want to know whether or not you have any unwanted or unused prescription drugs

Fall 13' Prescription Drug Take Back

The Macon Police department will have a box set up at their station for your use. You may dispose of all unwanted prescription drugs at any time with no questions asked.

Saturday morning, there was an opportunity to dispose of prescribed drugs at the C&R parking lot in Macon. The Missouri Rural Water Association teamed up with Macon Police to host a drug take back event. KTVO spoke with a MRWA representative who provided more information about the program.

â??We do this twice a year, usually once in the spring and once during the fall. Itâ??s usually in the C&R parking lot. They give us the opportunity to set up here and collect unwanted drugs here,â?? said Judy Wilson.
