The Washington Township Police Department now provides a free Medicine Drop Box for public use in the lobby of Police Headquarters, 1 E. Springtown Road. The Medicine Drop Box is available 24 Hours a day -seven days a week. The Medicine Box affords residents the opportunity to safely dispose of unwanted, unused or expired prescriptions in a safe, secure and anonymous way, free of charge.
Although the drop box is available 24 Hours a day-seven days a week, the easiest and most convenient times for Township residents to dispose of medication are Monday-Friday between the hours of 8:00AM-6:00PM.
Eliminating unused and unwanted medications from your home helps to keep your family and community safe. By properly disposing of your prescriptions, you are contributing to the safety and well-being of your community’s youth. The abuse of prescription and over-the-counter medications are on the rise, due in part to these drugs being easily accessible. Environmental safety is also important. By properly disposing of these toxic medicines we are working towards reducing our carbon footprint. You are now able to drop off these items in our lobby where they will be disposed of accordingly in conjunction with The Morris County Sheriffs Office. Clean out your medicine cabinet today!
