“Operation Take Back New Jersey” will take place
Saturday, September 27th from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM at the Holmdel Police Department.
The National Prescription Drug Take Back day allows citizens a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposing of unused, unwanted, or expired
prescription and over-the-counter medications to law enforcement agencies.
After medications are collected, law enforcement officials will dispose of all medication collected in a safe and non-hazardous manner.
Prescription drug abuse is the nation’s fastest growing drug problem; for that reason, keeping medications out of the wrong hands will help to keep our families stronger and our communities safer.
In the eight prior Operation Take Back programs, 4.1 million pounds of unused, unwanted, and expired medications have been collected across the United States with approximately 118,147 pounds being collected in the state of New Jersey.
We invite you to continue the progress that has been made in prior years by dropping off the above mentioned medicine at Holmdel’s Town Hall Building. If you would like further information, please contact Sergeant Robert Philhower at 732-946-4400.
