From the Elk County Sheriff's Office **




May 2, 2017

The Office of the Elk County Sheriff and Elk County District Attorney in collaboration with area local law enforcement agencies have collected 232.6 pounds of unused medicines for destruction over the last two months.  On May 2, 2017, the collection was transferred to Agents from the PA Attorney General’s Office and soldiers from the PA National Guard.  Total collected for 2017 thusfar has been 525.9 pounds.  This medicine collection program is designed to minimize the availability of unused medications that can be abused and to destroy them in an environmentally safe way.  Med collection boxes are available at the Elk County Sheriff’s Office, the Ridgway Police Department, the St. Marys Police Department, and the Johnsonburg Police Department.  The collection boxes allow medications to be disposed of in a manner whereby they are not retrievable by the general public and the contents remain confidential.  Pictured below from left to right are Sheriff Todd Caltagarone, Deputy Jason McDermott, and Chief Deputy James Borza.  Also pictured are soldiers from Fort Indiantown Gap.
