National Drug Take Back Day - The Hobbs Police Department, the Community Drug Coalition of Lea County and Walgreens have teamed up for the Drug Enforcement Administrations (DEA) Annual National Take Back Day. Citizens can bring their unused, unwanted, or expired prescription medications to the HPD/CDC booth in front of Walgreens located at 1401 North Turner or the Walgreen’s located at the corner of Joe Harvey and Grimes on Saturday, April 26th from 10:00am to 2:00pm. This service is free and anonymous with no questions asked.
Annually, during Take Back Day, Americans turn in over 120 tons of prescription drugs at nearly 4,100 sites nationwide operated by the DEA and more than 3,000 law enforcement agencies.
Medications are dumped into boxes and citizens keep or throw away the bottles. Any liquid medications turned in should have the label removed or written over with a marker since they will stay in their original container. The medications are picked up and destroyed by the DEA.
