Press Release: Medication Return Drug Collection Unit
In an effort to curb or reduce the abuse of prescription, over-the-counter, and other unused household medication, the Chester Township Police have acquired a Med Return Drug Collection Unit at the Police Department. This will allow Chester Township residents to anonymously dispose of unwanted medications in a safe and anonymous location. Environmental safety is also important. By properly disposing of these toxic medicines we are working towards reducing our carbon footprint. This receptacle will accept prescription and over-the counter medications, which includes pills, narcotics, capsules, patches, vitamins and pet medications. Items not to be deposited are syringes, IV bags, personal care products, inhalers or liquids. Members of the public can deposit medications into the collection unit twenty four hours a day, seven days a week with no questions asked. Citizens are encouraged to utilize this program which has been provided by the Morris County Prevention is Key’s effort to halt the diversion and abuse of prescription drugs. Any questions please contact Lt. Ed Noonan at firstname.lastname@example.org or 908-879-5514 Opt. 1 Ext 839.
