The Adams Township Police Department has obtained a Drug Drop Box designed to significantly reduce the prescription drugs in American homes that are either no longer needed or outdated. These same drugs have unfortunately become the target of theft and misuse, oftentimes by people who have access to the residence. More and more adults recognize the need to remove these substances from the home legally and safely turn them over to law enforcement for proper destruction.
The drop box is located in the lobby of the main floor of the municipal building located at 690 Valencia Road, Mars, PA 16046.
Residents can drop off unwanted medications Monday through Friday 7:30am-4:00pm.
Items that are permitted in the drug box are prescriptions, prescription patches, prescription medications, prescription ointments, over the counter medications, vitamins, samples, and medication for pets.
Items NOT permitted in the drop box are needles (sharps), thermometers, hydrogen peroxide, inhalers, aerosol cans, ointments, lotions, and liquids.
We recommend anyone dropping off medications scratch off or remove personal information on the bottles.
NEVER FLUSH medications. DO NOT POUR them down the sink or drain.
