Sheriff’s office to participate in countywide drug disposal

  • Posted: April 16, 2012

Sheriff Michael F. Strada has announced that the Sussex County Sheriff’s Office will be participating in the Sussex County Prescription Drug Disposal Day in conjunction with the Center for Prevention & Counseling, the Sussex County Prosecutor’s Office, the New Jersey State Police and police departments from Andover Township, Byram, Franklin, Hardyston, Hopatcong, Newton, Sparta and Vernon.

Unwanted, unused or expired medications will be collected by sheriff’s officers posted at the Sussex Borough A&P on Saturday, April 28, 2012, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. The A&P is located at 455 Route 23 North in Sussex Borough.

There will be additional collection points at the following locations during these same hours:

  • Andover Township Police Department
  • Byram Shop-Rite (Rt. 206)
  • Franklin Borough Police Department
  • Hardyston Municipal Building
  • Medicine Shoppe (50 Hopatchung Rd., Hopatcong)
  • Montague Shop-Rite (Rt. 23/Tristate Mall)
  • Newton Shop Rite (Rt. 206)
  • Sparta Police Department
  • Vernon A&P (Rt. 515)

The goal of this program is to provide residents with the opportunity to rid their homes of medications that are no longer needed by turning these medications over to law enforcement officials who will then dispose of the substances in a safe and non-hazardous manner.

For more information, please contact the Center for Prevention & Counseling at 973.383.4787.
