Prescription drug take-back boxes provide a place where unused prescription drugs can be safely disposed. These permanent boxes prevent prescription and over-the-counter medications from getting into the hands of children and into the waterways. They make sure they are disposed of in a safe, environmentally-friendly manner. Medication collection events and programs are part of a nationwide effort to reduce the amount of pharmaceutical products being flushed or poured down drains.
The box is located at Collegedale City Hall in the front entrance and is available during normal business hours. Visit the State of Tennessee's Tennessee Drug Take-Back website for more information.
