Local News

McLENNAN COUNTY, Texas – Area police departments and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will give the public an opportunity to prevent pill abuse, theft, and accidental consumption by children.

National Drug Take Back Day returns on Saturday, October 24th, and helps the public by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused and unwanted drugs. People can bring their pills or patches for proper disposal to local police departments. You can even bring veterinarian medications for disposal.

Items to not bring include liquids, needles and aerosols – only pills or medical patches. This service is free and anonymous.
