A new addition to the Township’s annual Drug TakeBack event will benefit the community while taking drugs off the streets.
Scheduled from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, October 23 in the rear parking lot of the Municipal Center, 2525 Rochester Road, the event will off a secure, safe way to dispose of unused, unwanted or expired medications. Social distancing measures will be in place.
This event will also serve as a used eyeglass donation drop-off for the Cranberry Township Lions Club’s Mission-Vision. Any used eyeglasses can be donated to help the Club achieve their goal of providing glasses to those in need.
Dispose of medications in the original container or by removing the medication from its container and disposing of it directly into the disposal box. Please remove any identifying information if disposing in original container.
If disposing of vape pens or other e-cigarette devices, remove batteries. If you cannot remove the battery, check with chain stores which may accept them for proper disposal.
Liquid products such as cough syrup should remain sealed in their original container. Please ensure the cap is tightly sealed. Intra-venous solutions, injectables, and syringes will NOT be accepted due to potential hazard posed by blood-borne pathogens.
