The Tega Cay Police Department received a grant from AmerisourceBergen Foundation through their municipal support program that aims to promote the safe disposal of opioids by providing communities with resources to deactivate prescription medications.
As part of the program, the AmerisourceBergen Foundation – a not-for-profit charitable organization focused on supporting health-related causes that enrich the global community and the philanthropic arm of AmerisourceBergen Corporation – distributed drug deactivation resources to municipalities that are actively working to prevent opioid abuse and misuse. The disposable resources use a new technology, which – when combined with water – effectively deactivate opioids, rendering them ineffective for misuse and providing a safe solution for site-of-use disposal. These DisposeRX packets are available for pickup at City Hall, the Tega Cay Police Department, and both fire stations. Feel free to stop by and pickup your packets today to safely and effectively dispose of your medications.
