Medication Drop Boxes In Place At Coudersport, Galeton, Sweden Township/Roulette Police Depts. & Potter County Sheriff's Office

Andy J. Watson, DA
The Potter County District Attorney, Andy J. Watson, is pleased to announce that Medication Drop Boxes have been received and are now in place at the Coudersport Borough Police Department, Galeton Borough Police Department, Sweden Township/Roulette Police Department, and Sheriff’s Department located at the Potter County Courthouse. 

District Attorney Watson obtained the Medication Collection Drop Boxes from the Pennsylvania District Attorneys Association. These boxes are accessible to the public at each office during regular business hours to safely dispose of any unused or unwanted medication, in the interest of keeping any prescription medications out of the hands of children and addicts and to promote environmentally conscious disposal.

Please note the following when dropping off medications:

1. All medications, whether prescription or over-the-counter, from households or residences are accepted.

2. Medications may be disposed of in the original containers or in a sealed plastic bag.

3. Liquid medications must remain in the original container and be sealed.

4. No needles, syringes or lancets may be placed in the drop box.

5. Individuals shall place the medication directly into the drop box.

6. Individuals utilizing the box shall not be questioned, be required to disclose personal identification, or be charged a fee for using the box.

7. Only controlled and non-controlled medications from the individual’s household or residence shall be collected.

The contact information for the above facilities are as follows: 

• Coudersport Borough Police Department – 814-274-8970
• Galeton Borough Police Department – 814-435-2600
• Sweden Township/Roulette – 814-274-0654

Where did this medication end up after it leaves the drop boxes? A police locker, a landfill or what,just wandering?

A year or more ago, Roulette contracted with Sweden Township to provide police services.
