Medication Collection Box Allows Citizens to Anonymously Drop Off Unused and
The Horsham Police Department has a new addition to the lobby of the police station, a drop box to collect unused and out-of-date medications and prescriptions for proper disposal. The collection box is accessible 24 hours a day and allows our residents to drop off their unwanted medications.
Many teens abusing medicines get them from the bathroom cabinet, a friend or a family member, often without their knowledge. Unwanted medicines left in the home endanger our children, seniors and pets. Young children and seniors are at risk of accidental poisoning. Flushing drugs send them into our water supplies while throwing them in the trash pollute our environment and can find their way into unwanted hands.
Residents can anonymously place the medications in the disposal site added to the lobby of the Horsham Township Police Station. All forms of medication, including tablets, capsules, pills, liquids and ointments, whether purchased by prescription or over-the-counter, will be accepted. However sharpies and syringes cannot be accepted due to the potential hazards posed by blood-borne pathogens.
