Project Medicine Drop Off
Tuckerton Borough Police Department has announced that it has joined the New jersey Attorney General’s "Project Medicine Drop" program, and has installed a Project Medicine drop box at police headquarters.
This announcement makes it easier and more convenient than ever for Tuckerton residents to take an active role in the fight against the nationwide epidemic of opiate and heroin abuse, which often is fueled by the abuse of prescription painkillers.
Project Medicine Drop is an addition to our commitment to help improve the public safety and quality of life in Tuckerton Borough. It will encourage our residents to be fully aware of the potential for abuse presented by otherwise beneficial medications.
The department’s new Project Medicine Drop box is located in the Tuckerton Borough Complex at 420 East Main St. Residents may visit the Tuckerton Police Department during the hours of 9:00am to 3:00pm Monday thru Friday, to dispose of their unused or excess medications.
