Unfortunately, kids in our community and surrounding areas are stealing
prescription drugs from family members and either using them or selling
them to others. In response to this growing problem, HVPD offers a safe,
effective and year round way to collect unwanted or expired household
prescriptions and unused medicines.
HVPD has two collection boxes located at the police department. One is inside the city hall rotunda next to the police department and the other is in the city hall parking lot next to the Utility Bill drop off box. Just put the unwanted drugs in a baggie or original unlabeled pill bottle and place them in the collection unit. If you are unable to use the drop off boxes please call the PD’s non-emergency number 972-317-6551 and an officer will be dispatched to your home to pick up your expired or unwanted medications and safely dispose of them.
Please do not damage our environment or contaminate our water supply by
flushing prescription drugs down the toilet or throwing them in the
trash. We appreciate your assistance in keeping our community safe.
