Bucks County Medication Collection Event Follow-up

Bucks County had a successful medication collection event.  Police officers collected unneeded, unused or expired prescription and over-the-counter medications for safe disposal at 48 locations throughout the county. Collection totals amounted to over 8,000 lbs. bringing Bucks County to a total-to-date of 78,783.18 lbs. All medications collected will be incinerated, thus eliminating the risk of diversion and protecting the water supply.

In case you missed the collection event on Saturday, you may dispose of unwanted medications freely and anonymously at one of the 32 drop off sites located in police stations throughout Bucks County. All medications will be accepted, including pills, capsules, ointments, liquids, nasal sprays, inhalers and pet medications. Needles and illicit drugs will not be accepted.
