Take Back Drugs Boxes

The Fort Worth Police Department will install "Take Back Drugs" boxes starting on November 5, 2012 at three police stations. Residents will be able to drop off unused and expired prescription and over-the-counter medications in an effort to prevent child poisoning, illegal use, and environmental threats. Medications should be in their original container. Items that will not be accepted are syringes, needles, or bulk items.

The locations are:
Police Headquarters - 350 W. Belknap Street (Open 24 hrs)
East Patrol Division - 1000 Nashville St.
West Patrol Division - 3525 Marquita Drive.

The program is part of the Police Department's work with the Fort Worth Safe Communities Coalition and city health agencies to earn the city the Safe Communities designation.
