What happens when you have unused, old or expired medications? Are you like me where they just take up space in your cabinet until you finally get tired of looking at them and throw them away? Well I have a solution for people like us...medication take back boxes. 

Since 2014, take back boxes have been located in the Odessa Police Department and the Ector County Sheriff’s Office. The Permian Basin Council on Alcohol and Drug Abuse, placed these take back boxes in these particular locations because it is never a good idea to flush old medications into the water system or for them to be dumped into landfills.

If you would like to drop off your outdated or unused medication, you can do so at the Odessa Police Station 24 hours a day, 7 days a week or from 8am-5pm Monday through Friday at the Ector County Sheriff’s Office.
