In August 2013, Bellefonte Borough Police Department began the collection of unused, unwanted or expired medication in order to keep these items out of the hands of children and other individuals who should not have access to these medications, as well as keeping them out of the environment. There is no need to remove the labels or take the items out of the packaging, as the entire item will be destroyed.
Liquids and over-the-counter medications are also accepted. If you bring in liquids, please see the Office Assistant, as these are placed in a separate container to avoid spills.
Drop off hours are Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., at the Bellefonte Police Department, 236 W Lamb St, Bellefonte.
Please remember to clean out pathways from the curb to your trash cans so that the refuse crew can get to them.
