Madelyn Gibbs, Fort Worth Neighborhood Education Office CITY
Hello to All,
Fort Worth residents have another chance to clean out their medicine cabinets as part of a federal Drug-Take-Back-Day. Over-the-counter and prescription medicines are accepted.
Nine drop-off locations will be open 10 am- 2 pm, Saturday, September 27th, Visit the City’s website: http://fortworthtexas.gov/takebackmeds/ for more information and a location nearest you.
Can’t make it on the 27th? The City has permanent, year-round Take Back Meds drop-boxes at three Fort Worth police stations:
• Police Headquarters, 350 W. Belknap St. (open 24 hrs., 7 days a week)
• East Patrol Division, 1100 Nashville St. ( 8 am -5 pm, Monday-Friday)
• West Patrol Division, 3525 Marquita St. ( 8am-5 pm, Monday-Friday)
Getting rid of leftover or expired medicines can help prevent abuse and accidental overdose, but putting medicines in the trash or flushing them down a drain can pollute our drinking water.
As always, please share with your neighbors, friends and family members.
Wishing everyone a great week,
