Police Press Release - Drug Disposal Box at Four Corners Pharmacy


The Bethlehem Police Department would like to take this opportunity to join with the Four Corners Pharmacy to share important information on a new initiative in the fight against the current opioid epidemic. 

The Four Corners Pharmacy, located at 360 Delaware Avenue in Delmar, has recently installed a secure drug disposal box.  This box allows people to dispose of unwanted and unneeded prescriptions and controlled substances in a manner that is both anonymous, and safe for the environment.  It is as simple as walking into the pharmacy and placing the pill bottles in the disposal bin. 

No community is immune to the plague of the opioid epidemic, however, working with our business partners, and community, we can work on all angles of this crisis.  Giving the community a safe and free method to dispose of prescriptions and controlled substances is yet another avenue to getting these substances off the streets.  Prompt and proper disposal reduces the risk of theft or improper use of these substances. 

The efforts of the Four Corners Pharmacy are paramount to the success of community involvement in dealing with this issue that is straining many aspects of our society.  We thank them for their dedication, and resources during this time.

  • Everyone may participate and the program is anonymous
  • If disposing in original container, you are encouraged to remove identifying information from the label (but that is not required)
  • Controlled and non-controlled substances are accepted
