Howell PD Collecting Unwanted Medication

Taking part in Project Medicine Drop

As part of a state-wide effort the Howell Police Department is taking part in an effort known as Project Medicine Drop in conjunction with State Attorney General Jeffrey S. Chiesa and the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs

The project includes lockable containers that look like mail boxes that are being placed at police and sheriff's departments across the area according to Detective Sgt. Eileen Dodd. "The boxes enable consumers to drop off their unused or excess medications safely and securely, with those law enforcement agencies authorized to take custody of controlled dangerous substances. 

Dodd said the boxes are designed to take solid medications, capsules, patches, inhalers and pet medication. Syringes and liquids cannot be collected at these locations.

The box is there now. There's no set end date for it to be there. For more specific questions about when you can drop anything off you're probably best to call the Howell Police Department.
