Safe Drug Disposal
The Bath Township Trustees are pleased to offer the Bath Township community the opportunity to safeguard our young adults and protect the local environment by using the red CVS Drug Drop-Off Box. Free prescription drug bags are available at the Police Department dispatchers' window.
The red CVS Drug Drop-Off Box provides a safe method for the disposal of expired or unwanted prescription medicines. Improper disposal of medicines presents both a public safety and environmental hazard.
Prescription drug abuse by teens and young adults is a serious problem in the United States. As reported in the Partnership for a Drug Free America’s annual tracking study:
- 1 in 5 teens has abused a prescription pain medication
- 1 in 5 report abusing prescription stimulants and tranquilizers
- 1 in 10 has abused cough medication
The environment is also being damaged by unused medicines. Medicines thrown into the trash can leach into the ground; flushed drugs can kill bacteria that break down waste in sewage plants, damage septic systems, and contaminate nearby waterways and harm aquatic wildlife.
A 2008 Associated Press investigation found pharmaceuticals in the drinking water supplies of at least 41 million Americans. Drugs have been detected in the drinking water supplies of 24 major metropolitan areas.
Bath residents have the power to prevent teens from drug abuse and improve the cleanliness of our water. You may bring old and/or unused prescription and over-the-counter drugs to the Police Department lobby, 3854 Bath Rd. Keep the medicines in the original container. Mark out your name and address. Secure the container and deposit it into the red CVS Drug Drop-Off Box.
Don't let your medicine contaminate the watershed or get into the hands of children or teens. Please dispose medication safely.
The Bath Police Department will ensure these unwanted drugs are incinerated as part of the ecological and safe disposal protocol. Together we will keep Bath safe!
