The Abilene Fall Medication Cleanout is scheduled to coincide with National Take Back Day, Saturday, Oct. 26, from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. at the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center’s School of Pharmacy, located at 1718 Pine St. Since 2011, Hendrick Health has been working with Texas Panhandle Poison Center, Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center's School of Pharmacy, Abilene Police Department and Taylor Alliance for Prevention to keep residents safe by disposing of medications in an environmentally responsible manner.

April’s Medication Cleanout in Abilene yielded 653 pounds of medications and 82 pounds of Sharps. All Big Country residents are encouraged to bring all unused and expired medications to the drop-off site in their original packaging, if possible. All personal information will be blacked out after collection. Oxygen tanks, IV fluid bags and other durable medical equipment such as nebulizers and glucometers, cannot be accepted.
