This Saturday, April 22, is Drug Take Back Day in partnership with Montgomery County. Since the drug disposal program began in 2010, over 108,000 pounds of unused prescription and over-the-counter medicines and pills have been collected in Montgomery County.
The program’s aim is to make Montco homes safer by preventing overdoses and accidents, while also providing a method for residents to safely dispose of their unwanted, expired medications. The program is a partnership with the Montgomery County Police Chiefs Association and the District Attorney’s Office.
Accepted throughout the year at permanent MedReturn boxes are prescription and over-the-counter tablets and capsules, inhalers, creams, ointments, nasal sprays, pet medicines, and vaping products. However, needles, liquid meds, and intravenous/injectable solutions are not accepted.
On Drug Take Back Day, residents can drop off their accepted medications at the Upper Merion Township Police Department located at 175 W. Valley Forge Rd. King of Prussia, PA. Let’s work together to keep our community safe and healthy!
