The Collingswood PD makes it easier and convenient for Collingswood residents to take an active role safely disposing of unused medications and preventing addiction, which can be fueled by prescription painkillers.
The Borough’s Project Medicine Drop Box is located in the lobby of the Collingswood Public Safety Facility:
434 Haddon Avenue
Collingswood, NJ 08108
Residents may visit the 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.
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.
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 residents 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 at NJ Division of Consumer Affairs.
