Northampton County Community & Economic Development recently partnered with the D.A.'s office, County Police Association and Sheriff's Department to install secure medicine collection boxes in 20 police departments throughout the County as well as at our County Courthouse. The medicine collection and destruction program will be available without charge thanks to a grant of $13,000 from the PA State District Attorney's Association.

Residents can anonymously dispose of unwanted medicines at police departments and the Sheriff's Office locations listed.

Law enforcement officials will turn over the collected medicines to the PA National Guard Counterdrug Joint Task Force (PA NG Task Force). The secure destruction services, including energy recovery, are being provided through the PA NG Task Force.

Drug addiction and misuse by adults and children harm public health. Improper disposal of medicines can impact water quality. Key objectives and benefits of the program include the following:

* Reduced access of medicines to children and adults, minimizing abuse potential * Improved environmental quality through proper disposal * Convenient box access to county residents * Cost effective solution for NC residents through leveraging of PA DA grant and PA NG destruction resources

If you should have any questions about this program, please contact Ken Zinis at kzinis@northamptoncounty.org

Do you know how important you and your love ones are? VERY IMPORTANT

Did you know that in the event of an emergency it makes the task of locating your home more of a challenge for ambulance, fire and police responders if they are unaware of where you live. A correctly posted house number could be the difference between life and death.

You should be aware that your house number needs to be conspicuously placed somewhere on your property as per Township Ordinance 95-7. You are required to restore or replace any number (s) that shall have been removed or destroyed.

Also, if your house is not visible from the roadway, because you live down a lane or have a long driveway, you should place some type of display that lists your house number at the beginning of the lane or driveway.

Heat is the number one weather-related killer in the United States, resulting in hundreds of fatalities each year. In fact, on average, excessive heat claims more lives each year than floods, lightning, tornadoes and hurricanes combined. Here are some tips for staying cool.....click here.
