Prescription Drug Drop-off

NOTICE: The drop-off bin is currently FULL and we are unable to accept more medications until the County empties the collection bin.  Please check back to this page for update.


Cheltenham Township residents are encouraged to dispose of unwanted, unused, or expired PRESCRIPTION MEDICATION at the Police Department’s “MedReturn Drug Collection” site. The collection box, which is located in the lobby of the police station, is a safe and secure location to deposit medication. Medication can be deposited from 6 AM – Midnight, 7-days a week.

Police Administration Building: 8230 Old York Rd, Elkins Park, PA 19027

The Police Department also participates in National Prescription Drug Take-back Day twice per year, generally April and October.  On these, days, our Drug Task Force will accept any amount of unwanted/unused medications, and take them, along with the contents of the lobby bin, to the County.
