City to Again Partner With DEA for Drug Take Back Day; April 27

Happening

What: Missouri City residents will have an opportunity this month to safely dispose of their expired, unused or unwanted prescription drugs as staff prepares for the next Drug “Take Back Day” in partnership with the Drug Enforcement Administration.

As the misuse of prescription medications continues to rise, events such as this provide an easy, anonymous way for residents to dispose of drugs. Residents are cautioned against flushing unwanted medications or putting them in the garbage as both methods pose potential safety and health hazards. Flushing drugs may pollute the water supply and throwing prescriptions in the trash makes them accessible to thieves, pets and wildlife, which could result in accidental poisonings and overdoses.

Locally and nationally, the program has successfully helped to promote community awareness of the issue, to combat illegal use of prescription drugs and to provide a place for proper disposal of medications.

When: Saturday, April 27 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.

Where: Missouri City Police Department, 3849 Cartwright Rd.

If individuals are unable to participate in the April 27, 2019 event, they may dispose of prescriptions in the “Drug Drop Box” in the Police Department Lobby. The box is accessible to residents year-round.
