The Drug Enforcement Administration’s fall National Prescription Drug Take Back Day is Oct. 29, and the Richardson Police Department will mark the day with this drive-through/drop-off Drug Take Back event. Bring your unused or expired pharmaceuticals, both prescription and over the counter, for disposal. The event keeps medications from being flushed down a sink drain or toilet and potentially entering our waterways, and helps keep drugs out of the trash, where pets, children and others might acquire them.
All solid dosage pharmaceutical products and liquids in consumer containers may be accepted. Liquid products, such as cough syrup, should remain sealed in their original container, with the cap tightly sealed to prevent leakage. Intravenous solutions, injectables, and syringes will not be accepted due to potential hazard posed by blood-borne pathogens.
