Fox Metro Water Reclamation District

As increasing amounts of prescription drugs and personal care products (PPCPs) are being detected in U.S. rivers, waterways, and groundwater, Fox Metro Water Reclamation District offers The Medication Take-Back Program, which allows residents of the District service area to bring their old, unwanted prescription and over-the-counter medications in to be properly disposed.
