The Haltom City Police Department will be participating in the DEA's National Drug Take Back on Saturday, October 23, 2021, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in the front parking lot of the Haltom CIty Police Department. On that day, citizens can surrender expired, unwanted, or unused pharmaceutical controlled substances and other medications to law enforcement to be properly disposed of by the DEA. Intravenous solutions, injectable items, and syringes will not be accepted due to the potential hazard posed by blood-borne pathogens.
This program is anonymous and no personal information will be collected from those disposing medication. Citizens may dispose of medication in its original container or by removing the medication from its container and disposing of it directly into the disposal box. Liquid products, such as cough syrups, should remain sealed in their original container. Please ensure the cap is tightly sealed to prevent leakage.
This is for the general public only. Pharmacies, physicians, veterinarians, etc. cannot dispose of their products during this event. To dispose of medication, citizens can simply drive through the parking lot and meet with the officer for deposit of the medication in the collection boxes. You do not need to park or get out of your vehicle.
