Drug Take Back Event

Saturday, April 29, 2017

On Saturday, April 29, the Mesquite Police Department will take part in a nation-wide collaborative effort to allow residents to dispose of unused medication. Residents may bring their expired, unwanted or unused medications to the lobby of the Mesquite Police Department, 777 N. Galloway Avenue, from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m., and deposit them for destruction. This is a voluntary program that allows people to anonymously dispose of medications safely. Controlled, non-controlled and over the counter medication will be collected from individuals. 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. For more information, please call the Solid Waste Division at 972-216-6285.
