Medication Drop Boxes

Medication drop boxes are securely placed at over 30 locations throughout Berks County. These drop boxes resemble a US Postal Service mailbox, and items can be easily dropped in, but cannot be retrieved unless unlocked by authorities. Inventoried medications are incinerated at the discretion of the Berks County District Attorney’s Detectives and Solid Waste Authority.

Medication Disposal Bags

Each bag contains a small pouch of a carbon compound. Unwanted medications are placed in the bag and warm water is added. The water works to dissolve an inner pod, releasing the activated carbon within. This disposal process works on pills, patches and liquids, allowing them to be absorbed by the carbon and rendering them inert and non-retrievable. The bag and its contents can then be safely disposed in a household trashcan.
