[ARCHIVED] National Drug Take-Back Initiative

Drug Take Back Day

This Saturday, October 26th from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm, the Sherman Police Department will provide an opportunity for you to turn in unused or expired medication for safe disposal. Collection sites will be located at the Sherman Police Department (317 S Travis) and Sherman Town Center (near Target).

The National Take-Back Initiative, endorsed by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) of the US Dept of Justice, aims to provide a safe, convenient and responsible means of disposing prescription drugs, while educating the general public about the potential for abuse of medications.

According to the DEA, the public has embraced the opportunity these Take-Back Day events provide to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, or unwanted prescription drugs. Local law enforcement agencies in thousands of American communities have partnered with the DEA in the previous five events that have taken place since September 2010.
