Medication Disposal Box

West Donegal Township now has a Safe Medication Disposal box in the lobby where residents may dispose of expired and unused prescription drugs and over the counter medications. This box is secure and will be emptied as needed by the police department who will make sure the drugs are disposed of in the proper way.

Any prescription medications and over the counter medications will be accepted. Illegal drugs, needles, lotions or liquids, inhalers, aerosol cans, thermometers and hydrogen peroxide will not be accepted. Labels should be removed from all prescription bottles before bringing them in.


The one-way exit spur from Maytown Road to West Ridge Road has been closed until further notice. This has been done to address a safety concern at this intersection. On the morning of December 4th, two vehicles were observed ignoring the DO NOT ENTER signage at the intersection of West Ridge Road & Municipal Drive, entering the spur against the flow of traffic, exiting on to Maytown Road and in both cases nearly causing accidents on Maytown Road. This is not the first time we have observed this type of illegal traffic movement. The frequency of these occurrences has increased in recent months. The spur will remain closed while we consider our options for improving the safety of this intersection.
