OPERATION TAKE BACK NEW JERSEY

The Holmdel Township Police Department is hosting another “Operation Take Back New Jersey” local collection site as part of the Operation Take Back New Jersey medicine disposal day.

The event will take place at Holmdel Town Hall on

Saturday, April 26, 2014 between the hours of 10:00AM and 2:00PM.

The following “Operation Take Back New Jersey” drop off information is provided by the Holmdel Township Police Department:

  • 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 seven prior Operation Take Back programs, 3.4 million pounds of unused, unwanted, and expired medications have been collected across the United States with approximately 98,947 pounds being collected in the state of New Jersey.  Once again, we invite you to continue the progress that has been made 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 or rphilhower@holmdelpolice.org.
