As reported in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette on Tuesday, December 17, 2013, there is a new initiative to securely collect unused/old prescription and OTC medications in addition to the DEA collections held in the fall.
Through a Federal Grant, the PA Commission on Crime and Delinquency has set up two MedReturn boxes in Allegheny County to collect prescription and over-the-counter solid medications, liquid medications, inhalers, creams, nasal sprays and pet medications. These collection boxes will NOT accept: needles or intravenous solutions.
The closest location is Moon Township Police Department
1000 Beaver Grade Road
Coraopolis, PA 15108
Take Back Event
The Findlay Township Police Department will have another Prescription / OTC Drug Take Back event - watch this space for details.
