WARREN, NJ - The Warren Township Police Department has joined the New Jersey Attorney General’s “Project Medicine Drop” initiative and have installed a Project Medicine Drop box at police headquarters.
The new Project Medicine Drop Box is located in the lobby of the Warren Township Police Department, 44 Mountain Blvd. Warren, New Jersey 07059.
Project Medicine Drop is an important component of the New Jersey Attorney General’s effort to stop the diversion and abuse of prescription drugs, including highly addictive opiate painkillers.
Through this initiative, the State Division of Consumer Affairs installs secure “prescription drug drop boxes” at police departments, sheriff’s offices, and State Police barracks across New Jersey, allowing citizens to safely dispose of their unused, excess, or expired prescription medications.
Residents may visit the Warren Township Police Department any time, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year, to dispose of their unused, expired or excess pills, capsules, patches and pet medications, in their packaging, anonymously with no questions asked. Liquids, needles and syringes cannot be placed in the box.
By giving New Jerseyans a safe and secure method to dispose of unneeded medications, Project Medicine Drop helps prevent the abuse of these drugs. This initiative also protects New Jersey’s environment by keeping these drugs out of landfills and the water supply.
