Help Prevent Prescription Drug Abuse

Did you know that the Franklin Township Police Department has a “Project Medicine Drop” Box to Help Residents Dispose of Unused Medications?

Franklin Township, Hunterdon County, is part of the New Jersey Attorney General’s “Project Medicine Drop” initiative and has installed a Project Medicine Drop box at police headquarters. This makes it easier and more convenient than ever for Franklin Township residents to take an active role in the fight against the nationwide epidemic of opiate and heroin abuse, which often is fueled by the abuse of prescription painkillers.

Project Medicine Drop is a natural element of our commitment to help improve the public safety and quality of life in Franklin Township. The Project Medicine Drop Box is located in the lobby of the Municipal Building at 202 Sidney Road, Pittstown, NJ. Residents may visit the Municipal Building from 8:00am-4:30pm Monday thru Friday to dispose of their unused or excess medication.

Project Medicine Drop is an important component of the New Jersey Attorney General’s effort to stop the diversion and abuse of prescription drugs, including highly addictive opiate painkillers.  More information can be found on the  Project Medicine Drop website.
