The Round Rock Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will give the public an opportunity to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs. Bring your prescription medications for disposal to 2701 N. Mays Street in Round Rock. Over-the counter and pet medications will also be accepted. Needles, syringes, thermometers, IV bags, medical devices and personal care products will not be accepted. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.
Take-back programs are the safest method for disposing of prescription drugs because they are organized and closely monitored by local, state, and federal government agencies. These agencies ensure the proper disposal of the drugs in accordance with federal law.
This event is for Round Rock residents. This program is not intended for medical businesses to dispose of medications. Medical businesses are regulated by DEA in how they dispose of medications.
