Project Medicine Drop
“Project Medicine Drop” is to encourage the public to discard
outdated or unused prescription medications at three collection
boxes located at municipal police departments. The drop boxes accept
solid pharmaceuticals such as pills, capsules, patches, inhalers,
and pet medications. They cannot accept syringes or liquids.
Flushing unused medicines or throwing them down a sink is not recommended because it contaminates waterways.
Drop off points in Ocean County are:
Seaside Heights Police Department, 116 Sherman Ave.,
or call (732) 793-1800
