Safe Medicine Drop

 

Project Medicine Drop is a program designed to allow Township residents to properly and safely dispose of their unwanted or expired household medications.

Residents can bring their unwanted or expired household medications removed from the original packaging and placed in a zip lock or similar type plastic bag to the Washington Township Police Department  24 hours a day. Residents will then place their medication into the Project Medicine Drop box which is located inside Police Headquarters at the police station anonymously and free of charge.  The medications will then safely and properly be destroyed.  

The Washington Township Police Department is located at 1 East Springtown Road.

Municipal Alliance

It is the mission of the Washington Township Municipal Alliance to prevent and reduce abusive behaviors inclusive of alcoholism, substance abuse, and bullying, along with violence, vandalism and victimization while attempting to remediate long-term harm and devastation that abusive behaviors of all kinds cause to our youth and families. We will act in partnership with our community and our allied agencies in a pro-active manner to promote a realistic and responsive approach utilizing education, prevention, public awareness and intervention while promoting positive alternatives to at-risk behaviors.
