Cocoa Business Donates Drug Disposal Box 

Cocoa company specializing in marine and environmental clean up products donated a drug disposal drop box to the police department in February. Elastec Inc., delivered the box to the Cocoa Police Department and it is currently available for public use to safely dispose of unwanted, unused, or expired prescription medications. Company representatives believe it is an important tool in helping law enforcement to not only reduce the number of drugs in people’s homes, but offer a safe method of disposal that prevents the potential for creating environmental hazards when people improperly dispose of their unused medications. “It’s critical to get these types of drugs off the streets and into an environment where they can be disposed of in a safe and responsible manner,” said Jeff Bohleber, chief executive officer for Elastec, an Illinois based company with operations in Cocoa, Florida. “We are happy to support this effort."
