Medication and Sharps Disposal
It is important to follow safe practices with all medications, including storing medications appropriately, taking medications only as prescribed, and locking up and monitoring medications. According to the Bucks County data from the 2021 Pennsylvania Youth Survey, 50% of Bucks County students who have misused prescription medication report the most common way they got it is from a family member living in their home. We can all do our part to keep our homes safe.
Remember to routinely clean out medication cabinets in your home. Keep medications up and away, or locked up, just as you would with alcohol. Safely dispose of medications year-round - click here for a listing of permanent medication collection boxes in Bucks County.
