Two years ago, Bucks Promise for Youth and Communities formed the highly responsive Bucks County Prescription Drug Take-Back Committee with the charge of developing a convenient and environmentally responsible prescription drug disposal program. By including key partners with a joint interest in reducing prescription and over-the-counter drug misuse, to date Bucks County officials have collected over 17,834.91 lbs. - over 8 tons - of unused, unwanted and expired medications. These medications no longer risk diversion from our medicine cabinets or pose a threat to citizens by polluting our water supply through unsafe disposal methods.
Our extremely successful Drug Take Back Committee continues to focus on the countywide Medication Take- Back Initiative and safe drug disposal efforts. If you are able to contribute or would like to join in this effort, please contact Donna Foisy [DFoisy@todayincbensalem.org] or come to our BPYC Consortium meetings.
