A number of local pharmacies and police departments participate in the Drug Take Back Program which allows you to turn in expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs. This is part of a nation-wide effort to prevent drug abuse and theft by providing residents a location to properly dispose of their potentially dangerous prescription drugs.
The following items are acceptable for drop off: prescription and over-the-counter solid medications (tablets and capsules), liquid medications, inhalers, creams and ointments, nasal sprays and pet medications. The following are not accepted: intravenous solutions, injectables or needles. To find a drop off location close to you, or if you should have any specific questions regarding what medications are or are not accepted, please do not hesitate to contact the Drug Take Back Program in Pennsylvania.
