West Vincent Township Police Department
Becomes a Medication Collection Site
West Vincent Township Police Department is pleased to announce the installation of a MedReturn Drug Collection Box in their Township Building. Residents from West Vincent and surrounding communities now have the convenience of safely and anonymously disposing of their unwanted/outdated prescriptions, OTC medications, vitamins and even pet medicines!
The Chester County District Attorney’s Office, through a grant, provided medication collection boxes to various police agencies throughout Chester County, with West Vincent being the most recent recipient.
In previous years, the West Vincent Police Department partnered with other local police agencies, Green Valleys and French and Pickering Creeks Conservation Trust, to participate in the DEA’s National Drug Take-Back Initiative. The event was held annually at a location convenient to northern Chester County residents. The Department feels very fortunate to now be able offer this service, right here, all year long!
West Vincent Police Department is committed to reducing drug abuse and keeping the environment safe. We encourage those in the community to take advantage of this program. All unused and expired medicines can be disposed of in the new MedReturn Drug Collection Box. The box is accessible during the Township’s regular business hours, 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM, Monday through Friday. The West Vincent Township Building is located at 729 St. Matthews Road, Chester Springs.
