DCHD Begins Mailing Drug Deactivation System to Residents
The Delaware County Health Department (DCHD), in partnership with Delaware County Council announced the launch of its Deterra Drug Deactivation System pouch as part of Delaware County’s use of opioid settlement funds. These non-toxic pouches are an organic and safe alternative for proper disposal of unused, unwanted and expired medications with the simple addition of water. In a simple 3-step process, residents deactivate drugs by putting them in the Deterra ouch, adding water, shaking, and throwing them away in the household garbage. DCHD will be issuing medium-sized Deterra pouches that can deactivate up to 45 pills.
Don’t Ditch! Deactivate. Recipients are urged not to dispose of these pouches before they can be used. If there is no immediate need for their use in the home, please store and save them for later use. The pouches do not have an expiration date. Residents who receive but do not want to keep these pouches are asked to share them with family members or neighbors who can use them. Learn more about the program.
