Drug Drop-Off Box Now Available at Perkasie Police Station
You know the bottles of medicine in your medicine cabinet that you haven’t a clue what to do with? Now you have an easy solution. Bring your unused, unwanted, and expired medication to the new permanent prescription drop box located at the Perkasie Police Station.The box is located inside the police station lobby. The Borough Council partnered with the Bucks County District Attorney's Office and the Upper Bucks Health Community Healthy Youth Coalition to purchase the box. The hope is that members of the community will safely dispose of their drugs in this box instead of flushing them down the toilet or leaving them where they could be stolen or abused by someone other than the person they were prescribed to originally.
Constituent Outreach Committee to Meet on Tuesday, July 9th
Before this year, residents could reach out to Council members privately through the telephone or e-mail, but actual dialogue during public meetings was limited. A "Public Forum" is held at the beginning and end of each meeting which allows residents to comment but not dialogue with individual members of Council.
The new Constituent Outreach Committee gives residents and businesses owners the opportunity to dialogue with current members of Council in a public meeting. Council members Steve Pizzollo (Ward 1), Justin Stottlar (Ward 2), and Jim Ryder (Ward 3) were appointed to the new Committee. Meetings will be held on the second Tuesday of every other month. The next meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, July 9th at 7:00 pm at Borough Hall.
The Planning Commission will continue to hold meetings on the second Wednesday of the month beginning at 7:00 PM (next meeting is June 12th) to further the process for the Borough's new comprehensive development plan preparation. Interested community groups, businesses, and residents are welcomed to attend. The meeting will be held at the Borough Hall building, 620 W. Chestnut Street, Perkasie unless otherwise stated.

The Pennsylvania Covered Device Recycling Act was enacted in 2010 and requires consumers to keep covered devices, such as computers, laptops, monitors, and televisions, out of the trash. Please click here for more information on recycling these devices.
