Medication Take-Back Program Available in Montville Township

MONTVILLE, NJ - Eliminating unnecessary medications from your home helps to keep your family and community safe. By properly disposing of your prescriptions, you are contributing to the safety and well-being of our community’s youth from accidental exposures and intentional misuse.

The abuse of prescription and over-the-counter medications are on the rise, due in part to these drugs being easily accessible in homes. According to the 2006 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, more than 2.1 million teens ages 12 to 17 reported abusing prescription drugs. Environmental safety is also important. Proper disposal of these medications protects our environment, including our water supply.

To help address this issue, the Montville Township Health Department encourages you to take advantage of Township’s Medication Take-Back Program. Unused, unwanted, and expired medications can be deposited safely, securely, and anonymously into their Medication Drop Box, which is available 24/7 in the lobby of the Public Safety Building, located at 360 Main Road/Route 202 in Montville.

Approved items for the Medication Drop Box include prescription medications including narcotics, over-the-counter medications, veterinary medications, medication samples, vitamins and supplements, and empty containers.

Non-approved items include needles, I.V. bags, personal care products, hydrogen peroxide, inhalers and thermometers. 

If you have any questions, please contact the Montville Township Health Department at 973-331-3316.
