Drop off unwanted Rx
Thursday, April 15, 2021 by Tai Moses
Travis County constables are partnering with the Drug Enforcement Administration to help community members safely dispose of unwanted prescription drugs for National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day, Saturday, April 24. Residents may bring their expired, unused or unwanted medications to Constable Precinct Two, 10409 Burnet Road, Ste. 150, from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. The drop-off is a drive-thru and no questions will be asked. As Travis County Commissioner Brigid Shea said, “Improperly disposed pharmaceuticals cause great harm to people, animals and our environment. This is a perfect opportunity to drop off unwanted medications appropriately and make a lasting difference.” Find year-round drug take-back information here.
