Katy ISD Participates in DEA Prescription Drug Take Back Day on April 27  

KATY, TX [April 19, 2024] – The Katy ISD Police Department is partnering with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) for the biannual National Prescription Drug Take Back Day. Scheduled for Saturday, April 27, this event offers the community a safe and convenient opportunity to dispose hazardous, expired, unused, or unwanted medications. We kindly remind participants not to include needles or sharp objects, and to ensure that liquids are presented in their original prescribed containers.

“We extend an invitation to our community to join us in this initiative, providing a convenient avenue for residents to rid themselves of unnecessary medications with no questions asked. The proper disposal of unused medications serves to protect individuals and their families from the potential dangers of medication misuse,” said Katy ISD Police Chief Henry Gaw.

Through the National Prescription Drug Take Back Day, the DEA and its partners across the country have collected nearly 18 million pounds of unused prescription medications. This month, collection efforts will take place in the lobby of Katy ISD’s Law Enforcement Center where residents can drop off unwanted medications.
