Irving residents have the opportunity to drop off pharmaceutical medications for proper disposal as part of the National Take Back initiative. The event will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Oct. 27 at two locations: the Irving Police Department parking lot, 305 N. O’Connor Road, and the Irving Police North Station parking lot, 5992 Riverside Drive. There is no cost to participate.
The program is a partnership between the Irving Police Department, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and other participating law enforcement agencies. It provides an opportunity for the public to surrender expired, unwanted or unused pharmaceutical controlled substances and other medications to law enforcement officers for destruction at a safe collection site.
