Drug Drop Box Program

The Probation and Parole Department is continuing the Drug Drop Box program.

Did you know that America has a heroin epidemic? Many users started out by experimenting with painkillers and other medications found at home. Some people get hooked on the painkillers themselves.

We all need to secure our medications so they don’t fall into the hands of children, but we also need to be aware that drug cabinets at home are targets of theft.

The old way of getting rid of old medications was to flush them down the toilet. The problem with that is the drugs get into the environment. That means pouring left over meds down the drain will end up polluting our streams and rivers.

The new drug drop box provides a secure place for you to dispose of dangerous drugs keeping them out of the hands of prescription drug abusers or kids, and out of our streams and rivers.

WHERE:
Juniata County Courthouse Annex Lobby
30 North Main Street
Mifflintown, PA 17059

WHEN:
Monday-Friday 8:00 A.M – 4:30 P.M.

Please join us in saving our children and our environment by dropping off your unwanted medications today.
