The Southlake Police Department held its annual Drug Take Back day on Saturday, April 30th and it was a big success. One-hundred-and-fifty-nine (159) pounds of unused prescription drugs were collected.
It was great to see so many Southlake residents making their homes safer by disposing of unused medicines and prescription drugs. If you were unable to participate in Saturday’s event don’t worry, The Southlake Police Department provides a secure safe for the disposal of unused medications Monday – Friday during normal business hours at our DPS headquarters at 600 State Street.
Citizens will find instructions to use the secure safe located in the lobby at DPS headquarters on the second floor.
The Southlake Police Department began it’s own drug take back program on June 3, 2013. The safe is filled and emptied on a regular basis and the drugs are then properly disposed of.
