Project Medicine Drop

New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs

 

Drop Box Locations

   
The effort to stop the abuse and diversion of prescription drugs begins at home - and must include the opportunity for New Jersey consumers to dispose of their unused medications safely and securely at any time throughout the year.

With New Jersey's Project Medicine Drop, we are placing secured drop boxes in the headquarters of local police departments. Consumers from anywhere in New Jersey can visit the boxes seven days a week, to drop off unneeded and expired medications - and keep them away from those at risk of abusing them.

The drop boxes accept solid pharmaceuticals such as pills, capsules, patches, inhalers, and pet medications. They cannot accept syringes or liquids.

Use the map to select a location near you or view the list below. For the hours of availability and other information, contact the police departments or call the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs at 800-242-5846.
