Local National Take Back Initiative Events Being Held on October 26th

Local National Take Back Initiative
The annual “Take it Back” disposal of expired or unused prescription or over the counter medications will be held at the Victory Lakes University of Texas Medical Branch on Saturday, October 26, from 10am to 2pm. Area residents can bring pills and liquids (in their original container, if possible, no needles) to the UTMB Specialty Care Center at Victory Lakes, located at 2240 Gulf Freeway. This is a safe, anonymous drive-through process which helps keep medicines out of landfills. Pharmacy personnel and law enforcement officials will be present. All medications collected will be disposed of. This project is being sponsored by the Southeast Texas Poison Center at UTMB, Bay Area Alliance for Youth and Families, and the Kiwanis Club of Galveston.
