UNUSED MEDICATION DISPOSAL now available at Lower Pottsgrove Township Police Department:
The Lower Pottsgrove Police Department now has a Med Return box installed in the police department main lobby. The box is generally available for access between 8:00 AM and 7:00 PM Mon-Fri. Anyone can come into the station and drop unused medications into the secure container without being questioned; NO ID IS REQUIRED AND NO OFFICIAL POLICE REPORTS ARE DONE. This is a self-service disposal site. We ask that you do not use the container to dispose of any syringes, sharps or liquid medications. Additional instructions are posted on the box.

If you are unable to drop your unused medications off during regular office hours, you can arrange to have an officer return to station if they are available. The officer will then permit you access to dispose of your unused medications. All collected medications will periodically be turned over to the DEA for proper disposal.

Recent Federal regulations require most municipalities to adopt new methods to help improve the quality of stormwater runoff to the creeks and streams. An important aspect of these requirements is raising public awareness of the importance of the issue and advising the Township residents how they can help in reducing stormwater pollution. Township residents can learn more about these new regulations and the need to improve stormwater quality by visiting the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) stormwater website and by reviewing the many helpful pamphlets available on the Township's Stormwater Managment webpage.
