Operation Take Back

October 24, 2019 @ 12:00 am

The Harrison Township Police Department will once again be participating in the National Prescription Drug Take Back Day.
Turn in your expired/unwanted prescription drugs for safe disposal at the Harrison Township Police Department on October 26th, 2019 between the hours of 10:00am and 2:00pm.

HOW TO PREPARE ITEMS FOR DISPOSAL

– All pharmaceutical drugs to be disposed must be placed in a sealed container such as the original bottle or zip-lock bag.

– Liquid pharmaceuticals should remain in the original container.

– Personal information should be removed or marked out

with a permanent marker.

YOU CAN DISPOSE OF:

– Prescription and over-the-counter solid medications

– Tablets and capsules

– Pet medicines

-Vape pens or other ecigarette devices only after the batteries are removed from the devices. It is important to stress that the Harrison Township Police Department is not responsible for removing the batteries from the devices. If the battery cannot be removed, individuals can check with large electronic chain stores who may accept the vape pen or e‐cigarette devices for proper disposal. Individuals may also contact their local Hazardous Materials Management Facility to determine if they accept these devices, and for additional guidance regarding proper disposal.

YOU MAY NOT DROP OFF:

– Intravenous solutions

– Injectables, syringes, and needles (i.e. EpiPens)*; these need to be taken to a health care professional’s office or to a hospital for disposal.
