Lower Police Plan Drug Take-back Day Event

By Press Release

VILLAS – The Lower Township Police Department and Lower Township Healthy Youth Coalition will be participating in National Prescription Drug Take-back Day April 24. 

According to a release, officers will be at the entrance to the Acme Market, located in the Bayshore Mall, at 3845 Bayshore Road, North Cape May, between the hours of 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. During that time, residents can turn in any unwanted or expired prescription medicines or drugs to police officers. The program is anonymous, and individuals disposing of medications will not be required to produce identification. 

In addition to this one-day annual event, Lower Township residents and visitors can dispose of any unwanted or expired prescription medications, at any time, in the project medicine drop disposal box, located at the Lower Township Police Department, in the Cape May County Airport Complex. During the current renovations of the Public Safety Building, please follow the posted instructions in the Police Department temporary lobby, when dropping off any unwanted/expired medications. 

If the prescription drugs are disposed of in their original container, residents are encouraged to remove the prescription label if it contains any personal identifying information. Liquid products, such as cough medicines, should remain sealed in their original containers. Syringes and other sharp instruments will not be accepted. 

Those with questions can contact the Lower Township Police Department, at 609-886-1619, or Steve Selby, of the Lower Township Healthy Youth Coalition, at 609-522-5960.
