Prescription Drug Disposal Day - Revised Locations

Due to the problems associated with the recent storm, the countywide prescription drug disposal day has been changed and three disposal locations (Franklin, Hopatcong and Lafayette) have been cancelled.

Good news... there are two places in our county that have permanent disposal boxes available for Sussex County residents to use 24/7, 365 days of the year! They are located at the Newton Police Department (Trinity Street) and the NJ State Police- Sussex Barracks (Route 206, Augusta.)
