Drop Off Old and Outdated Prescriptions with No Questions Asked

It’s time to clean out the medicine cabinet. The Tyler Police Department and Brookshires are teaming up with the Drug Enforcement Administration for the National Prescription Drug-Take Back Day this Saturday, April 27, 2013.

The medication drop off will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Brooshires Grocery Store on Roseland Road.  Just drive-up and drop off your unused and expired medications for safe disposal without getting out of your vehicle.

This is a great opportunity for those who missed the previous events, or who have subsequently accumulated unwanted, unused prescription drugs, to safely dispose of those medications.

These drive-through events are free and allow you to turn in unused and expired medications for safe disposal. It is important to clean out your medicine cabinet, especially if you have children. Young children may confuse it with something to eat or drink and keeping unneeded medications with teenagers can lead to potential drug abuse. Medications including prescriptions, over-the-counter drugs, veterinary medicine, vitamins, minerals and medication samples are all accepted. Medical equipment such as oxygen tanks, sharps, inhalers, thermometers, nebulizers and IV bags cannot be accepted.

In the five previous Take-Back events, DEA in conjunction with our state, local, and tribal law enforcement partners have collected more than 2 million pounds (1,018 tons) of prescription medications were removed from circulation.

The Medication Cleanout is also sponsored by Brookshires. For more information, visit www.medicationcleanout.com.
