Visit Fairview Fire Station #1 on Saturday, October 28, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., to surrender anonymously expired, unwanted or unused pharmaceutical controlled substances and other over-the-counter medications to law enforcement officers for destruction.

This one-day effort will bring national focus to the issue of pharmaceutical controlled substance abuse. The program provides an opportunity for law enforcement to collaborate with the DEA and establish a safe collection site.

Participants may dispose of medication in its original container or by removing the medication from its container and disposing of it directly into the disposal box. Liquid products, such as cough syrup, should remain sealed in the original container, the depositor should ensure the cap is tightly sealed to prevent leakage. Intra-venous solutions, injectables and syringes will NOT be accepted due to potential hazard posed by blood-borne pathogens. 

Location Fairview Fire Station #1 500 State Highway 5 Fairview, TX 75069
