National Prescription Drug Take Back Day Set for Saturday April 24


Saturday, April 24, is “National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day”. Here in Texarkana, there are three secure locations to dispose of outdated or unneeded prescription meds. There are drop boxes located at Texarkana Emergency Center & Hospital, the Bi-State Building, and the Miller County Sheriff’s Office.

Here is a press release from TAPD:

The Texarkana Arkansas Police Department is getting the word out early to our community for the
Drug Take-Back Program coming up on Saturday, April 24, 2021.

We have teamed up with the Drug Enforcement Agency (D.E.A.), so the received drugs can be disposed of properly. Some of our officers will be present at Texarkana Emergency Center located at 4646 Cowhorn Creek Rd in Texarkana, Texas.

The officers will begin receiving drop-offs at 8:00 am and end at 12:00 (Noon.) If this time frame
does not work for some, the drug drop-off bins are always available at three locations in our area.
Texarkana Emergency Center, Bi-State Center, and the Miller County Sheriff’s Office.

Individuals that want to dispose of any medications can simply drive up on this date and during the
listed times and simply drop these off to our officers without even getting out of their vehicle.
