“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.

Instructions & Information:
  • A drop off box will be set up at Town Hall and a member of the Police Department will be present at all times.
  • This collection is anonymous, and you do not need to show any identification.
  • Medication can be disposed of either in its original container or by removing it from its container and disposing directly into the drug disposal box.  If you are going to dispose of your medication in its original container, we encourage you to remove the prescription label if it contains any personal identifying information. 
  • Liquid products, such as cough medicine, should remain sealed in their original container.  The depositor should ensure that the cap is tightly sealed to prevent leakage. 
  • Syringes and other sharp instruments will not be accepted

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.
