Fourth Annual Coastal Bend Prescription Drug Take-Back Day

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) - Drug Take-Back Day is Saturday, so if you have any expired, unused or unwanted prescription drugs, you can bring to our Kiii-TV studios for quick and safe disposal.

The event is organized by the Drug Enforcement Administration and local police departments, and aims to prevent pill abuse by helping residents rid their homes of unwanted prescription drugs. Studies show that the majority of abused drugs are obtained from family and friends, including your medicine cabinet.

There will be multiple drop-off locations, including our Kiii-TV studios at 5002 SPID, from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday. Below is a list of other drop-off locations:
