Project Medicine Drop

Project Medicine Drop Box

The Milltown Police Department has joined the New Jersey Attorney General’s “Project Medicine Drop” initiative and has installed a Project Medicine Drop Box at police headquarters.

This makes it easier and more convenient than ever for Milltown Borough residents to take an active role in the fight against the nationwide epidemic of opiate and heroin abuse, which often is fueled by the abuse of prescription painkillers.  

The Department’s new Project Medicine Drop Box is located at:

Project Medicine Drop Box
39 Washington Avenue
Milltown, NJ 08850

The Drop Box can be found by the police department’s front desk hallway area. 

Residents may visit the Milltown Police Department at any time, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year, to dispose of unused or excess medications. 

About Project Medicine Drop

Project Medicine Drop is an important component of the New Jersey Attorney General’s effort to stop the diversion and abuse of prescription drugs, including highly addictive opiate painkillers. 

Through this initiative, the State Division of Consumer Affairs installs secure “prescription drug drop boxes” at police departments, sheriff’s offices, and State Police barracks across New Jersey, allowing citizens to safely dispose of their unused, excess, or expired prescription medications. 

Members of the public are invited to visit the Project Medicine Drop sites and drop off any used prescription medications anonymously and with no questions asked. Most Project Medicine Drop sites make this service available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and 365 days a year. 

By giving New Jerseyans a safe and secure method to dispose of unneeded medications, Project Medicine Drop helps prevent the abuse of these drugs. This initiative also protects New Jersey’s environment by keeping these drugs out of landfills and out of the water supply. More information about Project Medicine Drop, including the full list of Project Medicine Drop locations, can be found on the New Jersey Consumer Affairs website.
