Prescription Drop Off Service
Due to a drastic increase in the abuse of household pharmaceuticals, law enforcement is recommending swifter removal of unused medications from households, and a higher level of vigilance on safeguarding drugs from abuse. The Woolwich Township Police Department has been collecting pharmaceutical prescriptions and other medications since 2010. A large drop box is located in the PD lobby at the Municipal Complex located at 120 Village Green Drive. The drop box allows anonymous drop-offs of unwanted and/or expired medications even when officers are out of the road and unavailable. Drop-offs are permitted during normal business hours. The PD does not sort through the prescription drugs as a mandate to protect drop off identity. Materials collected are properly disposed of by the DEA at the Gloucester County Prosecutor's Office. In a given year, over 100 lbs of Rx's are disposed of, but much more can, and should be collected.
Traditionally, residents in New Jersey and elsewhere had been encouraged to flush drugs, but negative environmental impacts to waterways and sensitive receptors have been identified. Scientific studies have shown that pharmaceuticals – including antibiotics, anti-convulsants, mood stabilizers and sex hormones - are commonly found in trace amounts in drinking water supplies. In rare cases, occurring in senior communities, disposal through municipal systems has led to theft of drugs from the trash with intent to sell them illegally.
