National Prescription Take Back Day – October 24th



We have been notified the Alamo Heights Police Department will not be a collection point for unwanted, unused, expired drugs as advertised for October 24, 2020. The US Drug Enforcement Agency has been limited to ten (10) collection points in this region due to the continued COVID threat and has spread collection points around San Antonio.

You may still visit any of these collection points to drop off unwanted drugs regardless of where you reside. The date and time have not changed: Saturday, October 24th, 10am -2pm. For your convenience we have identified the following collection points within ten (10) miles of Alamo Heights:

Hollywood Park Police Department, 2 Mecca Drive, Hollywood Park, Texas

Windcrest Police Department, 8601 Midcrown, San Antonio, Texas

Live Oak Police Department, 8022 Shin Oak, Live Oak, Texas

Northside ISD Police Department, 5619 Grissom Rd, San Antonio, Texas

We regret we were unable to participate as planned and look forward to the possibility of being one of the selected collection points in April 2021. It has been our pleasure to bring this service to the citizens of Alamo Heights, Olmos Park and Terrell Hills and will continue as long as we are selected to be a collection point.

Thank you for your understanding in this matter.

Rick Pruitt, Police Chief                                                                                                                                    Alamo Heights Police Department


On Saturday, October 24th, the Police Department will be accepting expired, unused and unwanted prescription or over the counter drugs, no questions asked. Due to the risk of injury to handlers, syringes, epi-pens or other injectable devices are not accepted. Stop by Alamo Heights City Hall, 6116 Broadway, East Entrance, during the hours of 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. (See notice above for other nearby sites).
