OPERATION TAKE-BACK – September 27, 2014, 10 A.M. – 2 P.M.

Colts Neck Township Police together with the Colts Neck Alliance are once again participating in the DEA’s Operation Take Back.

Drop off location:  Court House, 124 Cedar Drive  (Municipal Complex).

This is a great opportunity to prevent prescription pill abuse and theft by ridding your homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription and over-the-counter drugs.  The Colts Neck Police and DEA cannot accept liquids, needles or sharps, only pills or patches. 

This is a free and anonymous event, no questions asked.

The National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day aims to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposal, while also educating the general public about the potential for abuse of these medications.

Any questions please contact Sgt. Caswell at 732-780-7323 ext. 108
