Prescription Drug Collection Box

Did you know?

A permanent drug collection box has been placed in the lobby of the Westtown-East Goshen Regional Police Department to encourage members of the community to remove expired or unwanted medication (prescription or over-the-counter) from their homes to reduce access to addictive drugs for accidental or intentional misuse by individuals, particularly children. Medication disposal boxes also offer an environmentally safe, accessible, and convenient alternative to disposing of medication in the trash or sewer systems.

Any resident can drop off unwanted medication during normal business hours which are Monday through Friday 8:30am to 4:30pm. Just simply walk into our main lobby, place the items in the collection box, and walk back out the door!

Unfortunately, the Westtown-East Goshen Regional Police Department cannot accept any sharps (syringes, auto pen injectors, or needles), or illegal drugs in the collection box. Please place loose pills in some form of a container or prior to placing them into the collection box. 

Once a month, the drugs are packaged and safely destroyed via an incinerator. To date, the Westtown-East Goshen Regional Police Department has collected and destroyed thousands of pounds of unwanted medication.
