Recently, we provided a dumpster that was used in a drug bust in the Summerdale neighborhood of Philadelphia. According to authorities, on September 1, 2017, agents raided a home on the 1100 block of Rosalie Street to find more than 10,000 bags of narcotic drugs. As a result of this major drug sting, 10 people have been arrested.

They believe this drug to be heroin laced with fentanyl, a narcotic drug that is more powerful than oxycontin and morphine. On the street, fentanyl is in the form of a powder. It is so potent that just inhaling or absorbing this powder through the skin can be deadly. In the past, police officers have arrived at the scene of an overdose, only to overdose themselves. 

During this incident, three cops were given Narcan, a nasal spray that can reverse overdoses, and taken to the hospital. They have since been released.

The opioid crisis is a serious problem that is plaguing our country. At Roll-Off Dumpster Direct, we are saddened by stories like this, but we are glad that we were able to supply a dumpster to assist, even in this small way.
