National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day: A Medication Disposal Event

The UT College of Pharmacy, Forty Acres Pharmacy, and UT Police Department are hosting a take-back site for the National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day.  The event allows members of the UT community to safely and conveniently dispose of their unused prescription and over-the-counter medications free-of-charge.  This event is sponsored by the Green Fee Committee. 

The take-back event takes place in front of the College of Pharmacy. Turn South on University Ave from Dean Keaton.  Drive up to one of our volunteers and drop off your medications. You don’t even have to get out of your car.
