SAVE THE DATE: Next National Drug Take-Back Day is April 30

Do you have prescription bottles with meds that are either outdated or that you no longer use? Did you know that throwing them away not only gives potential thieves your personal information, but may also contribute to the stock of street drugs? Did you know that flushing them down the toilet can contribute to city water contamination?

No matter your answers, keep in mind that the next National Drug Take-Back Day, sponsored by the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), will be on Saturday, April 30 from 10am to 2pm in the front parking lot of the Grapevine Public Safety Building, located at 1007 Ira E. Woods Avenue.

You can bring your unused or expired medications (no liquids, aerosols, or sharps, please) to be safely disposed of, as well as any papers with your personal information on them to be shredded (provided by Data Shredding Services).
