MedReturn Collection Box

(Matamoras, 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 Eastern Pike Regional Police Department.

The Eastern Pike Regional Police Department has partnered with the District Attorney’s Office to establish a permanent MedReturn drug collection program in order to reduce the supply of drugs that can potentially harm teens and adults.

This initiative is part of Pennsylvania’s Prescription Drug Take-Back Program.  Governor Corbett’s Healthy Pennsylvania Prescription Drug Take-Back program initiative focuses on alleviating the health and safety concerns from the diversion and abuse of prescription medications by helping our communities properly dispose of unused prescription medications.

According to the 2011 Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH), more than six million Americans abuse prescription drugs. Among youth who are 12 to 17 years old, 7.4 percent report past year non-medical use of prescription drugs.

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 citizens won’t have to wait for a specific take-back day to clean out their medicine cabinets.

The collection site is open Monday through Friday from 8:00a.m. until 4:00p.m.. Drugs can be dropped off with no questions asked at 10 Avenue I, Matamoras, Pa 18336.
