National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day

The Brentwood Police Department will again partner with the Drug Enforcement Administration in its National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day.

The Brentwood Police Department will again partner with the Drug Enforcement Administration in its National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day. 

This one-day event will make it convenient for the public to rid their homes of potentially dangerous prescription drugs. 

On Saturday, Oct. 26, from 10 a.m.-2 p.m., representatives from the Brentwood Police Department and the Williamson County Anti-Drug Coalition will stand by at the Brentwood Municipal Center where residents will be able to drop off their expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs. Please note liquids, needles and sharps of any kind will not be accepted. Vape pens without batteries will be accepted. 

Please note this year’s Drug-Take Back event will again coincide with the annual Komen Race for the Cure. The race will result in multiple road closures in the Maryland Farms area. For those who plan to drop off items between 10 a.m. and noon, approach the Municipal Center from the west using Granny White Pike and Virginia Way. 

During the April 2019 Take-Back event, over 468 tons of prescription drugs were brought to collection sites that DEA and its state, local and tribal law enforcement partners established. 

For additional information on Drug Take-Back Day, contact the Drug Enforcement Administration.
