Medford Police Dept's Project Medicine Drop Initiative

The Medford Police Dept. has joined the NJ Attorney General’s “Project Medicine Drop” initiative and has installed a Project Medicine "Drop Box" at Police headquarters, located at 91 Union Street, across from Freedom Park. The Project Medicine Drop Box is located in the lobby. Residents may visit the Police Department any Monday thru Friday from 8:30 am - 4:30 pm to dispose of their unused or excess medications. (No needles) Members of the public can drop off any unused prescription medications anonymously and with no questions asked.

Through this initiative, the State Division of Consumer Affairs installs secure “prescription drug 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. This "Drop Box" makes it easier and more convenient than ever for Medford 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.

Medford Police Dept's Project Medicine Drop Initiative

Project Medicine Drop is a natural addition to the Police Dept's commitment to help improve the public safety and quality of life in Medford. They encourage residents to be fully aware of the potential of abuse presented by otherwise beneficial medications. The Drop Box is also an important component of the NJ Attorney General’s and Medford’s effort to stop the diversion and abuse of prescription drugs, including highly addictive opiate painkillers.

By giving New Jerseyans a safe and secure method to dispose of unneeded medications, Project Medicine Drop helps to prevent the abuse of these drugs. More information about Project Medicine Drop, including the full list of Project Medicine Drop locations, can be found at New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs or by clicking HERE for Burlington County locations.
