Prescription and Over-the-Counter Drug Disposal – Neighboring township’s police departments (including North Coventry and West Vincent) now have permanent medication collection boxes where residents can safely dispose of medications. Please do not flush your medications down the toilet! Septic systems and sewage treatment facilities are not capable of removing medications during the treatment process so your medications will end up in our creeks and streams.
