N.J. medicine drop program now in all 21 counties

    New Jersey’s ever-expanding “Project Medicine Drop” is growing once again and will be in all 21 counties by the end of October.

    Twenty new drop-off sites across the state will bring the grand total to 27 locations where people can safely dispose of unused prescription medicine.The drop sites are available for use all day, everyday.

    The New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs plans to add six more boxes early next year. Since its launch last November, the program has collected more than 2,000 lbs. of unused meds. Current drop-off locations are in Camden, Cape May, Cumberland, Hunterdon, Ocean, Passaic and Somerset counties.
