Project Medicine Drop is an initiative involving the installation of "prescription drug drop boxes" at participating New Jersey police departments. The Park Ridge Police Department keeps the locked metal box inside our lobby with the “Project Medicine Drop” logo clearly visible and recognizable. Project Medicine Drop allows the public to dispose of unused and expired prescription medications safely, securely, and anonymously. The opportunity is available seven days a week, 365 days a year. This initiative builds on the success of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration's National Take Back Initiative, and the American Medicine Chest Challenge, which is sponsored in New Jersey by the DEA, Partnership for a Drug Free New Jersey, and Sheriffs' Association of New Jersey. Both programs provide single-day opportunities to drop off unused medications at pre-identified, secure locations. Project Medicine Drop provides the opportunity to discard unused expired prescription medications, every day throughout the year. Our department maintains custody of the deposited drugs, and dispose of them according to their normal procedures for the custody and destruction of controlled dangerous substances. We report the quantity of discarded drugs to the Division of Consumer Affairs on a quarterly basis. If you are disposing of medication we ask that you follow this procedure: Remove medication from original packaging and place in a zip loc bag (that we provide in our lobby). Deposit the sealed zip loc bag into our drop box We accept solid medications such as: pills patches Inhalers We CANNOT and DO NOT accept: liquids medical waste syringes
