Medication Disposal Drop Box now located at Azle Police Dept

The Azle Police Dept has partnered with Complete Care Azle to provide our community with a safe and convenient way to dispose of unwanted prescription or non-prescription medications via a secure medication drop box located in the hallway outside the Police Dept’s Dispatch Center. The Public has access to the drop box anytime to discard dangerous and abuse prone medications that otherwise may remain stored in the home. Before now, the closest location for safe disposal of unwanted or outdated prescriptions was a distance of 12 miles in another city. Prescription drug abuse is of great concern to parents, the elderly, care-givers and your Azle Police Dept.
