Recommendations to Appropriately Dispose of Medications

 

MEDICATION DISPOSAL

If you are in need of disposing unused or expired medications, Operation Drop Box allows you to do so anonymously, 365 days a year at “prescription drug drop boxes” located within the headquarters of participating police departments in each of New Jersey’s 21 counties.  The participating police agencies maintain custody of the deposited drugs, and dispose of them according to their normal procedures for the custody and destruction of controlled dangerous substances.  They report the quantity of discarded drugs to the Division of Consumer Affairs on quarterly basis.  

This initiative builds on the success of the U.S. “Drug Enforcement Administration’s Nation Take Back Initiative, and the American Medicine Chest Challenge which is sponsored by the DEA Partnership for a Drug Free New Jersey, and the Sheriffs’ Association of New Jersey.  Both programs also provide single-day opportunities to drop off unused medications at pre-identified, secure locations.

National Take Back Day is scheduled for April 27, 2013. Collection sites can be found by going to www.deadiversion.usdoj.gov and will be listed by April 1st.
