National Take Back Day is a safe, convenient, and responsible way to dispose of unused or expired prescription drugs. The October 2019 Take Back Day brought in 882,919 pounds (almost 442 tons) of unused or expired prescription medication and vape devices.
The 2020 National Drug Take Back event in April was canceled due to COVID-19 and the October event has not been scheduled yet.
You can drop off unwanted prescription and non-prescription medication at any time at CVS in Palestine located at 1919 S Loop 256. You can also locate a drop-off location near you by going to the Diversion Control Division website.
