On Saturday, October 23, 2021, Travis County Constables will team up with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) to allow the public to safely dispose of expired, unused, or unwanted prescription drugs. Residents can drop off their medications at Constable Precincts Two, Four, and Five from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. This service is free and anonymous with no questions asked.

Travis County residents are encouraged to take advantage of our convenient drive-thru to drop off their expired or unwanted prescription and over-the-counter medications as part of the National Take Back Initiative sponsored by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). Following the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines for slowing the spread of COVID-19, collection site officials will be wearing masks. The public is also asked to wear masks as they drive through the collection site.
