National Drug Take Back Event
April 27, 2019 @ 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM
On April 27 from 10 am-2 pm The Duncanville Police Department will coordinate a collaborative effort with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) focused on removing potentially dangerous controlled substances from our nation’s medicine cabinets.
The national take-back day provides a unified opportunity for the public to surrender expired, unwanted, or unused pharmaceutical controlled substances and other medications to the Duncanville Police Department for destruction.
Controlled, non-controlled, and over the counter medications will be collected from individuals. Intra-venous solutions, injectable items, and syringes will not be accepted due to potential hazard posed by blood-borne pathogens.
Participants may dispose of medication in its original container or by removing the medication from its container and disposing of it directly into the disposal box. Liquid products, such as cough syrup, should remain sealed in their original container. The depositor should ensure that the cap is tightly sealed to prevent leakage.
