1/6

Spring 2020 Medication Cleanout events in Abilene, Amarillo, and Lubbock have been cancelled by TTUHSC in an effort to prevent spread of the COVID-19 virus. We will be back in the fall!

In the meantime, if you have meds that you need to dispose of, you can go to takebackday.dea.gov, scroll to the bottom of the page where it says “year round drug disposal”, then enter your zip code, and you should get a list of places near you that have drop boxes.

Prevent Poisonings​

In Texas, poisonings are second only to motor vehicle accidents as a cause of death from unintentional injury. Unused medications in the home can be the source for these poisonings. And poisonings are not limited to children. Just under half of calls to poison centers are about teens and adults.

Medication Cleanout™ disposes of medications in an environmentally responsible manner.

Prevent Abuse

Abuse of prescription medications is one of the fastest growing drug problems in the nation. This is particularly a problem amongst teens.  Prescription drug abuse is now second only to marijuana abuse. Parents, grandparents, friends, or acquaintances are frequently the unknowing source.

Medication Cleanout™ disposes of medications in an environmentally responsible manner.

Prevent Misuse

The sharing of medicine with others is an unsafe & potentially deadly practice. Self-treatment with an inadequate supply of antibiotics can result in antibiotic resistance and a delay in appropriate medical attention. The use of medications of others for illness or pain can be harmful as well.
