Project Medicine Drop
Hackettstown Police Department today announced that it has joined the New Jersey Attorney General’s “Project Medicine Drop” imitative, and has installed a Project Medicine Drop box at police
Today’s announcement makes it easier and more convenient than ever for Hackettstown residents to take an active role in the fight against the nationwide epidemic of opiate and heroin abuse, which
often is fueled by the abuse of prescription painkillers.
“Project Medicine Drop is a natural addition to our commitment to help improve the public safety and quality of life in Hackettstown. It will encourage our residents to be fully aware of the
potential for abuse presented by otherwise beneficial medications,” Hackettstown Police Sergeant Darren Tynan said.
The department’s new Project Medicine Drop Box is located at the Hackettstown Police Department 215 West Stiger St Hackettstown, NJ 07840. Residents may visit the Hackettstown Police Department at
any time, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year, to dispose of their unused or excess medications.
The Hackettstown Police Department also has a “Mobile Drop Box” that will be used at community events, senior citizen centers, take-back events and more.
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
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.
Members of the public are invited to visit the Project Medicine Drop sites and drop off any unused prescription medications anonymously and with no questions asked. Most Project Medicine Drop
sites make this service available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.
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 out of the water supply. More information about Project Medicine Drop, including the full list of Project Medicine Drop locations, can be found
