Prescription Drugs/Med Return

Township Police Accepting Unused Prescriptions

Township residents can dispose of out-of-date and unused prescriptions and over-the-counter medicines in a special container, called “Med Return,” that has been installed in the lobby of the Township Police Station at 230 S. Sporting Hill Road. Users are asked to either remove all prescription medication labels or place all the pills in a plastic ziploc bag.

Unfortunately, we cannot accept liquids or syringes.

The Police Department lobby will be available for drop-off from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday.

What can be placed in the Med Return container?
Prescriptions, over-the-counter medicines, prescription patches, ointments, vitamins, sample medicines and pet medicines.

** The Med Return container was purchased with funds donated by the VFW Post in Hampden Twp.

Medical Waste Disposal Guidelines:

Residents are reminded that household medical waste, including needles, can be placed in the regular trash as long as proper procedures are followed. All needles must be capped and/or placed in a secure container, such as a milk jug or coffee can, etc. The entire container can then be disposed of in the trash.
