COMMUNITY REPORT ON MEDICATION DROP BOXES

From:  Stephanie L. Vettenburg-Shaffer, District Attorney

McKean County has partnered with the PA District Attorneys' Association and PA American Water Company to establish medication drop boxes throughout McKean County.

The medication drop boxes are located at the following locations:

Bradford City Police Station, Bradford Township Police Department, Kane Borough Police Station, Sheriff’s Department, and State Police Barracks-Lewis Run.

The County Detectives with the District Attorney's Office collect and weigh the unused medication in the boxes and arrange for their disposal with the Attorney General’s Office.

The drop boxes are for anyone in our area to discard any unused medication they may have to prevent it from being used by anyone other than to whom it was prescribed as one step in preventing abuse and to prevent it from being flushed and impacting our water supply.

Anyone who suspects illegal drug activity is encouraged to contact the McKean County Drug Task Force at MCDTFtip@gmail.com or (814) 887-3312.
