Harlingen police to collect prescription drugs this weekend

Do you have old medications at home you need to get rid of but don’t just want to throw in the trash?

The Harlingen Police department will be taking part in the Drug Enforcement Administration’s National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day going on this weekend.

Officers will have a drop-off location near the food court at Valle Vista Mall on Saturday, April 30. They’ll be there until 2 p.m.

Harlingen police and the DEA encourage everyone to dispose of medications so they won’t get in the hands of children or those who might abuse them.
