National Prescription Drug Take Back Day

Safely dispose of expired and unwanted prescription drugs

October 26 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

On October 26, 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. Our last event in April collected 1,129 lbs. of prescription drugs.

Bring your prescription medications for disposal to 2701 N. Mays Street in Round Rock. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.

Materials Accepted: Prescription medicines, Over-the counter medications, diabetic test strips, and pet medications
 
Materials NOT Accepted: Needles, syringes, thermometers, IV bags, medical device, and personal care products
 
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.
