IMG_3274 The blue med return box was recently acquired through a cooperative effort between the Lancaster County District Attorney’s office and a number of municipal police depts around the county. The return box and accessories were acquired through a PA Commission on Crime and Delinquency grant. With the surge in prescription drug abuse, the Law Enforcement community is encouraging citizens to properly dispose of any unused or outdated prescription drugs. Removing the drugs from a residence may precent a family member from becoming addicted.   Please help our community by properly disposing of prescription drugs via the med Return Box!  see flyer for more details: med return collection unit
