DRUG TAKE BACK DAYS

The New Britain Township Police Department participates in a County-Wide Drug Take Back Day in the Spring and Fall of each year. The program is a great opportunity for those who have accumulated unwanted, unused and / or expired prescription drugs.

HOW DRUGS ARE DISPOSED

After all the drugs are collected they are transported to a facility to be incinerated. This is the best method of disposing of the drugs. Pouring down the drain or flushing unwanted, unused, and/or expired prescription drugs down the toilet keeps medicine(s) from entering streams and rivers which can affect our drinking water supplies.
