DEA National Drug Take Back Day

DEA Drug Take Back Day

The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will be conducting another National Drug Take Back Event on October 27, 2018. As in the past, the Schertz Police Department will be an official drop-off location. Anyone can drop off unused, unopened or expired prescription drugs anonymously. These drugs can include expired or unused prescribed medications, supplements and or pet medications. Please note, we cannot accept liquids, needles or sharps, only pills or patches.

The event will take place in the lobby of the Schertz Police Department located at 1400 Schertz Pkwy, Bldg. 6, Schertz, Texas. The event will run from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM.

In an effort to expedite to flow of participants, Schertz PD is asking to place any loose pills in a zip top bag for disposal.

According to the DEA, April's National Drug Take Back Event resulted in nearly 475 TONS of unused, unwanted or expired prescription medications. The collection of these drugs prevented them from being abused or being flushed down the toilet.
