From 2012-2022 a total of 40 tons of medications were disposed of in Berks County Medication Drop Boxes.
Flushing or pouring medications down the drain can pollute our waters, impact aquatic species, and contaminate our food and water supplies.
Medication drop boxes are securely placed at over 20 municipal police buildings throughout Berks County. These drop boxes resemble a United States Postal Service mailbox, and items can be easily dropped in, but cannot be retrieved unless unlocked by Berks County District Attorney Detectives. Inventoried medications are incinerated at the discretion of the Berks County District Attorney’s Detectives and Solid Waste Authority. Learn more.
Please note: medications should be in the original container with personal information blacked out. For further questions, please call our office at (610) 376-8669, or visit the District Attorney’s website HERE.
