MedReturn Drug Collection Unit
Lehigh Township, PA - Citizens looking to dispose of excess and expired prescription and over-the-counter medications can now visit the safe and secure permanent drop off location at the Lehigh Township Police Department.
Bechtel's Pharmacy has partnered with Lehigh Township Police Department to establish a permanent MedReturn drug collection program in order to reduce the supply of drugs that can potentially harm teens and adults.
Properly disposing of excess drugs is everyone's responsibility as a matter of public safety. More than 70 percent of young people abusing prescription pain relievers get them through friends or family, a statistic that includes raiding the family medicine cabinet. Now Lehigh Township citizens won't have to wait for a specific take-back day to clean out their medicine cabinets.
The collection site is open Monday thru Friday, 8am-3:30pm. Drugs can be dropped off with no questions asked.
