Allen Police Department will host two collection sites for the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) National Drug Take Back on Saturday, April 28. One will be held at the Allen City Hall (305 Century Parkway) from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. as part of the Great American Cleanup event. The second location will be at the Lowery Freshman Center (601 E Main Street) from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Officers and volunteers will be on site to accept any drugs a citizen wishes to discard. The drugs will be collected and surrendered to the DEA to be disposed of properly.

This includes any drugs, whether they are prescribed to you, a family member or anyone else; illegal drugs; and even old pet prescriptions. The officers on site will ask no questions, except if there are "sharps."

Please do not bring unused medical supplies that can be safely disposed of in your home trash.
