September 25, 2017

MOOSIC, PA – Hazleton Creek Properties (HCP) donates $2500 to support Hazleton’s new “Drop the Drugs” Van Program to help the community securely dispose of unwanted medications.

In an effort to keep prescription drugs out of the hands of children, the mobile drug drop-off will visit area organizations that need to dispose of unwanted drugs. The van can be scheduled in advance by providing information to the program’s director.

“I am working to gain support to expand into Greater Hazleton a successful program currently underway in Susquehanna County,” said Mr. Brenner. “The ‘Drop the Drugs’ mobile van is an initiative started by Susquehanna County District Attorney Robert Klein, and staffed by the county sheriff’s office, to make it easier for residents to safely and securely dispose of old or unwanted prescription drugs.”

HCP’s President, Bill Rinaldi, believes supporting this important undertaking is vital to the health of our neighbors, families, and friends:

“Along with every other concerned citizen, Hazleton Creek Properties understands the breadth and severity of heroin addiction in our community. We are proud to be a part of a solution that will help prevent further exposure of excess prescription drugs and allow our residents to securely dispose of these medications safely.”
