Guidelines for Prescription Drug Disposal

Project Medicine Drop Logo

Over the counter and prescription medications should not be disposed down the drain because wastewater treatment facilities are not designed to remove pharmaceutical compounds and they may end up in your local waterways, and may eventually be found in drinking water. Properly disposing of unwanted and expired prescriptions and over-the-counter medications prevents accidental poisoning and intentional abuse (NJDEP).

Project Medicine Drop: Sussex County residents can now safely, securely and anonymously dispose of unused or expired prescription and over-the-counter medication at EIGHT locations 24-hours a day, 7 days a week!
