 DEA Takeback 092714.pdf

The DEA, Drug Enforcement Agency, will conduct their fall 2014 pharmaceutical collection day on September 27, 2014, at various locations across Harris County. These items may not be collected at Household Hazardous Waste Collection Facilities and this is the only method where you can properly dispose of your prescription medicines.

Open the attached flyer for additional information or go to to locate the closest collection site to you.

If you have any questions regarding what we can accept at the Harris County HHW Collection Facility you may call 281.560.6200 for a recording or 281.560.6230 for the HHW Program Manager.

Thank You.
