Since MedDropSA started in 2009, the program has collected more than 40,000 pounds of unused and expired medications.

The misuse of prescription drugs is on the rise in the U-S, fueling the growing opioid epidemic. That’s why disposing of unused medications the right way is so important.

This weekend, MedDropSA is hosting a drug drop off event. It’s Saturday from 8 until 1 at Alamo City Christian Fellowship Church, 6500 Interstate 35 North.

You must present a picture ID and a recent copy of your CPS bill to qualify to use the service.
