Have old medications? Drop them off Saturday for Drug Take Back Day

This is happening again this weekend (April 28).

Travis County Constables are happy to have your old expired, unused and unwanted prescriptions.

Travis County Constable Offices will be happy to take back your prescription drugs on April 28.

On Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. you can drop them off at these precinct locations:

4717 Heflin Lane Suite 127


10409 Burnet Road, Suite 150


8656 Texas 71 W. Suite 132


4011 McKinney Falls Parkway Suite 1100


1003 Guadalupe St.

The events help properly dispose of the medications. You should never throw prescriptions in the toilet or in the trash because that could lead to harming the water supply or falling into the wrong hands (kids).
