LANCASTER NOW HAS DRUG DROP-OFF BOX
A grant from the Lancaster Community
Foundation has made it possible for you
to get rid of your old prescription drugs
and over-the-counter medicines,
24-hours a day, seven days a week.
That’s because the Lancaster Police
Department was recently able to buy a
drop off box for old or unused medications.
Sergeant Deb Reukauf with the Lancaster
Police says it makes it easier for local
residents, rather than having them
wait for the next drug round-up event.
Reukauf tells us what you can and
They also will not take thermometers,
aerosol cans and hydrogen peroxide.
Also, you should drop off pills in
in the original containers, or seal
the pills in a ziploc baggie and then
drop them in the box.
The Police Department says Hartig Drug
in Lancaster can shred any prescription
drug bottles that you have.
Sergeant Reukauf says the Police Department
wants to thank the Lancaster Community
Foundation for the $1,000 grant to buy the
prescription drug, drop off box. It’s located
in the lobby of the Police Department.
