The Roselle Park Police Department is proud to be participating in the “Project Medicine Drop” initiative which allows citizens to properly and safely dispose of expired or unused medications 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. Project Medicine Drop helps prevent the abuse of these drugs by giving New Jersey residents a safe and secure method to dispose of unneeded medications. This initiative also protects New Jersey’s environment by keeping these drugs out of landfills and out of the water supply. 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.
The Borough of Roselle Park’s Project Medicine Drop box is located in the lobby of the Roselle Park Police Department at 110 E. Westfield Avenue, Roselle Park, NJ. All unused and expired prescription medications as well as pet medications can be placed anonymously in the Project Medicine drop box. Residents should remember to remove personal information such as address labels off of the bottles before dropping them in.
For safety reasons, the Project Medicine Drop boxes can only accept legal prescriptions or over-the counter solid medications such as pills, patches, inhalers, and similar objects. The boxes cannot accept liquids, medical waste, or syringes. Consumers wishing to dispose of these objects should speak with their doctors or pharmacists to find the safest and best ways to dispose of them.
