Operation Take Back New Jersey, a drug collection for unwanted, expired and unused medicine, will be take place on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The collection will take place in the Manalapan Police Department lobby of the Manalapan Township Municipal Building, located at 120 Route 522.
Operation Take Back New Jersey helps combat the rising issues of prescription drug abuse and misuse. Manalapan Township Police Department applied for and received a grant from the National Association of Drug Diversion Investigators (NADDI). As a result of the grant, the Manalapan Township Police Department received and installed a drug drop box in the lobby of the Manalapan Township Municipal Building. The box resembles a mailbox and is available for use by any resident. It is a safe way for residents to dispose of their prescription drugs safely.
Please be sure to remove all labels with identifying information from the bottles before disposal of the prescription medications on Saturday and when using the drug drop box.
