Community Programs

MED RETURN BOXES

The Awake Community Coalition in collaboration with the Monclova Fire department and the Waterville and Whitehouse Police departments offer three permanent bed return boxes for proper disposal of unused and unwanted medications.

ID SCANNERS
Just one way our community can take part in preventing underage drinking. 

Although only a tool, a single swipe of a state issued driver's license or identification card, the Identification (ID) Checker can verify that the card holder is of legal drinking age.  It can also detect a potential false identification card. For more information on how to borrow the scanners for your next event contact our office at 419-877-0466 ext. 12037.
