Drug Deactivation Pouch

To combat the growing opioid epidemic in PA, free drug disposal pouches are being made available in Lehigh County.

It is important to dispose of medications properly as 80% of heroin addicts start by abusing prescription drugs and get them from medicine cabinets of friends and relatives. You can help in this fight against addiction by picking up a pouch and properly disposing of your leftover medications.

Adding warm water can deactivate as many as 45 unwanted pills in the pouch, which can then be thrown away.

Our thanks to the office of Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro for providing us with the locations. Please click on the link below to download these sites.
