Lower Police Team with DEA for National Prescription Drug Take Back Day

Lower Police Team with DEA for National Prescription Drug Take Back Day

From Lower Township Police Department

On Saturday, October 28, 2023; from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Lower Township Police and the Drug Enforcement Administration will host DEA’s National Prescription Drug Take Back Day at locations across the country. DEA and its partners will collect tablets, capsules, patches, and other solid forms of prescription drugs.

For more than a decade, the event has helped Americans easily rid their homes of unneeded medications—those that are old, unwanted, or expired—that too often become a gateway to addiction.

Take Back Day offers free and anonymous disposal of unneeded medications at more than 4,000 local drop-off locations nationwide.

What: National Prescription Drug Take Back Day
When: Saturday, October 28 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. local time
Who: Lower Township Police Department
Where: Acme Markets (Bayshore Mall), at 3845 Bayshore Road in North Cape May – inside, in front of the Pharmacy

In partnership with local law enforcement, Take Back Day has removed more than 8,300 tons of medication from circulation since its inception.

Collection sites will not accept syringes, sharps, and illicit drugs. Liquid products, such as cough syrup, should remain sealed in their original container. The cap must be tightly sealed to prevent leakage.
