Removing unwanted and unused opioids and prescription drugs from our medicine cabinets and keeping them off the streets of Greater Hazleton, PA.

Drop the Drugs Hazleton van

Hazleton’s “Drop the Drugs” Van

A mobile drug drop-off location to help keep excess and unwanted prescription drugs out of the hands of our children.

Hazleton’s “Drop the Drugs” van is an initiative patterned after one originally started by former Susquehanna County District Attorney Robert Klein. The goal is to make it easier for residents to safely and securely dispose of old or unwanted prescription drugs.

The point is simple: Let’s make it easier to get these addictive drugs out of our medicine cabinets and off our streets. The earlier these opiates are taken out of our medicine cabinets and properly destroyed, the safer our community will be.
