The National Prescription Drug Take Back Day provides a safe, convenient and responsible way of disposing of prescription drugs and educating the public about the potential abuse of medications. The misuse and improper disposal of expired and unwanted prescription drugs is a growing problem nationwide and threatens local water supplies, according to the DEA.

Outside of Drug Take Back Day, there are other ways to dispose of unwanted prescription drugs, including a drop-off box located at the Travis County Constable Pct. 5 office. It’s available from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. every Monday through Friday.
