Waco Police started theirs on Friday morning at their headquarters on 3115 Pine Avenue. There is a lockbox set up in the lobby.
FOX44 recently reported on what Temple Police are planning to do for Drug Take Back Day. You can view our previous story here.
Killeen Police are doing something similar at their headquarters at 3304 Community Boulevard. Many other police departments are also taking part in the initiative.
“The likelihood of those unused medications getting into the hands of the wrong person is very high and very dangerous,” says Lydia Bailey, of Integrated Pain Associates.
This is for prescription drugs only. No one is accepting over-the-counter medications or sharps.
