National Drug Take-Back Day - Monmouth, Ocean Counties New Jersey

It's not Thanksgiving yet, but if you have leftovers (prescription drug leftovers), please participate in a local National Drug Take-Back Day event.

7th Annual National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day - Saturday Oct. 26, 2013

We’re excited to spread the word that on Saturday, Oct. 26,  National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day will be sponsored by over 30 locations in Monmouth County. From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., residents of Freehold, Belmar and other cities in Monmouth County will be able to anonymously drop off their excess prescription and over-the-counter medications at these collection sites.

The purpose behind National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day is to promote the safe disposal of medications. Unused medications can be a temptation to anyone with a drug problem, and a potential hazard for children, animals, and individuals experiencing difficult circumstances.

Disposing of medications by flushing them down the drain puts dangerous chemicals into our water system. Since many prescription drugs are controlled substances, they must be responsibly managed, even when no longer needed.

What do YOU do with your expired or un-needed leftover prescription drugs?

The main Monmouth County drop-off location is the Monmouth County Sheriff’s Office at 50 E. Main St. in Freehold. Freehold residents can also make drop-offs at the Freehold Police Department, Raceway Mall, the Freehold Borough Police Department and Michael J. Tighe Park.

Keansburg residents can make drop-offs at the Keansburg Police Department, McGrath Towers, Grandville Towers and Fallon Manor.
