Drug Take Back Event

Saturday, October 22, 2016

On Saturday, October 22, the Mesquite Police Department (MPD) will take part in a nationwide effort to allow residents to dispose of potentially dangerous controlled substances from their medicine cabinets. The program will be held from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. in the MPD lobby located at 777 N. Galloway Avenue. Residents may bring their expired, unwanted or unused medications and deposit them for destruction. This is a voluntary program and allows people to anonymously dispose of these medications safely. Controlled, non-controlled and over the counter medication will be collected. Liquid products, such as cough syrup, should remain sealed in the original container. Intravenous solutions, injectables, and syringes will NOT be accepted due to the potential hazard posed by blood-borne pathogens. Illegal substances are not part of this program and should not be placed in the collection containers.
