This fall’s National Drug Takeback Program will be on Saturday October 22nd from 10am to 2pm in the lobby of the Trophy Club Police Department.

On October 22, 2016, from 10am-2pm, the Trophy Club Police Department will be working with the DEA to coordinate a collaborative effort with state and local law enforcement agencies focused on removing potentially dangerous controlled substances from our nation’s medicine cabinets.  A national take-back day will provide a unified opportunity for the public to surrender expired, unwanted, or unused pharmaceutical controlled substances and other medications to law enforcement officers for destruction.

Intra-venous solutions, injectable items, and syringes will not be accepted due to potential hazard posed by blood-borne pathogens.
