CEDAR GROVE, NJ - The Cedar Grove Police Department will be participating in the bi-annual Operation Take Back Program sponsored by the Drug Enforcement Agency. This program enables the public to get rid of unused, unwanted and expired medications properly.

Prescription drug abuse is rapidly becoming one of our nat ion ' s greatest emerging drug problems and it is widely recognized that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from home medicine cabinets. In addition to this growing drug problem, unused and expired prescription medications also represent a severe environmental hazar d. Most individuals are not  aware of methods to _properly dispose of their unused medicine, often flushing them down the  toilet or throwing them away; both potential safety and health hazards.

This service is free and anonymous, with no questions asked. Any questions  regarding regarding the collection contact Sgt . Jose Rodriguez - JRodrigu ez@ cedargrovepd.org.
