Getting rid of any unused or expired medications piling up in your medicine cabinet is easy.
The Euless Police Department has a permanent site for dropping off over-the-counter and prescription drugs that are outdated or won’t be used.
The city previously had collection days twice a year.
“I found a medication unit that would be available all of the time instead of once or twice a year,” Lt. Brandon Zachary said. “The chief felt like it was a good service for our citizens,and we moved forward with it.”
Zachary said he is pleased with the community’s response so far.
“We were pleasantly surprised that we’re getting a consistent amount of medication each week,” Zachary said.
The drop-off box is next to the duty officer’s desk in the main lobby at the department, 1102 W. Euless Blvd. (also known as Texas 10). People can drop off their medications during regular business hours, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. A sign shows which medications are accepted and which are not.
The service is available to anyone, not just Euless residents.
