UNWANTED & EXPIRED MEDICINES
Many residents wonder how to properly dispose of unwanted or expired medicines. The Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) has listed new disposal options that might be coming:
1. The PA DEP has a website where you can search your zip code and get the closest drop-offs. These are the currently listing of options for folks in Erie County to drop-off unwanted medications. https://apps.ddap.pa.gov/GetHelpNow/PillDropSearch.aspx?zip=16506.
2. LECOM also has a link on their site about the reason for properly disposing of unwanted medication & then a list of the locations that accept them: https://lecom.edu/safely-dispose-of-your-unwanted-medications/.
3. The Dept. of Health has a flyer with the locations & contact information in case folks have questions: https://www.eriecountypa.gov/media/341560/med-return-flyer-_1.pdf.
There are currently 12 locations, and most are either police stations or university Police & Safety offices, because of the security need.
