Since then we have also added Easter Seals and Habitat for Humanity Donations, Document Shredding and a Drug Take Back event.

  • This year we had 237 residents participate in at least some element of the event. 43 residents brought back drugs.

    The shredding event was also very popular!

Drug take back

Drug Take Back

  • We contacted our local Deputy and had him check into requirements for a Drug Take Back event.

  • After checking with the DEA he learned all he needed to do was have an officer at the collection event.

  • Afterwards he took everything collected in an evidence bag and burned it in an incinerator at their office.


Ut pharmacy school students

UT Pharmacy School Students

  • Contacted Dr. Diane Gingsburg at UT School of Pharmacy to see if students could help.

  • Contact is: [email protected]

  • Students worked in two 2 hour shifts for volunteer hours needed for school.

  • They were very helpful on the drug intake, especially separating the pills in blister paks!

Lessons learned:

  • Having a shredding event at the same time as the Take Back Program was very important to the overall success of the event. Residents liked being able to discard drugs andcontainers.

  • Use pictures to advertise for next event!

  • For Drug Take Back-items to provide: plastic bags, plastic gloves, scale for weighing returned items.
