OPERATION TAKE BACK NEW JERSEY-April 29th
Chatham Township- The Chatham Township Police Department, in partnership with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) New Jersey (NJ) Division, will be providing safe and convenient locations for citizens to legally dispose of their unwanted, unused, and expired medicines this coming Saturday, April 29th.
"Operation Take Back New Jersey" will afford residents the opportunity to rid their homes of medications no longer needed, and at the same time help prevent these pills from possibly falling into the wrong hands or into the illicit market affecting so many communities.
Please know that this is an anonymous program and no questions will be asked. Medications can be disposed of in their original containers directly into the collection box and no inventory will be conducted. Liquids medications should be kept in their original, tightly sealed containers. No Syringes will be accepted. A police officer will be located at each of the following collection sites between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. to offer assistance and answer your questions.

"This little town isn't too far from the Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge. With protected land nearby, it makes sense that Chatham Township has also dedicated a lot of its resources to protecting its own people. The local police department developed "10 Community Policing Districts," which provides people in those areas with programs like the Medicine Drop Box that gives people a place to safely dispose of unwanted medication."
