As part of the UNT Health Science Center Police Department’s commitment to providing for a safe campus community, the Department has installed a drug drop box in the lobby of the Police Department. Unused and discarded medications can be a potential risk of abuse or environmental contamination.
This box will be available to the public 24/7 to deposit unneeded prescription and over-the-counter medications. The box will be located in the Police Department lobby at 3600 Mattison Ave.
Loose pills should be placed in one of the plastic bags provided before depositing into the drop box.
