Saturday is Drug Take Back Day

 

This Saturday, April 28, is the day to eliminate all those unused prescription medications from around the house.

In conjunction with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) National Drug Take Back program, the Marble Falls Police Department, Burnet County Sheriff's Office and an area pharmacy will host locations where people can anonymously dispose of outdated and unused prescription drugs.

No questions or requests for identification will be made, and medication labels will not be read. Syringes/needles, "sharps," and scalpels, however cannot be accepted.

“Unused prescriptions sometimes seem like 'fair game' to kids who might ingest them or people from out of the household who might take them for illegal consumption,” said Marble Falls Police Chief Mark Whitaker. “On Saturday, someone will be on hand from 10 a.m.-2p.m. at the Public Safety Facility (606 Avenue N, Marble Falls) to man a drop-off box in the lobby.”
