Montgomery Township offers a Project Medicine Drop Box in the lobby of the Municipal Complex, 100 Community Drive, Skillman. 

The township’s Project Medicine Drop Box is located in front of the police department entrance. Residents may visit seven days a week, during the operating hours of municipal offices and/or library hours. Additional arrangements may be made by contacting the police department during off hours.

The public may bring unused or unwanted medications including prescription and over-the-counter pills and their packaging.

No loose pills please. While the public is welcome to remove personal I.D. information from their materials, this is optional.  All medications will be destroyed securely by the Somerset County Sheriff's office.  

This project makes it easier and more convenient than ever for Montgomery Township residents to take an active role in the fight against the nationwide epidemic of opiate and heroin abuse, which is fueled by the abuse of prescription painkillers.

“Project Medicine Drop is a natural addition to our commitment to help improve the public safety and quality of life in Montgomery Township. It will encourage our residents to be fully aware of the potential for abuse presented by otherwise beneficial medications,” said Montgomery Township Police Department Captain and Director of Police Silvio Bet.

The Township has joined the New Jersey Attorney General’s “Project Medicine Drop” initiative. Project Medicine Drop is an important component of the New Jersey Attorney General’s effort to stop the diversion and abuse of prescription drugs, including highly addictive opiate painkillers.

Through this initiative, the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs installs secure prescription drug drop boxes at state police barracks, sheriff’s offices, and police departments throughout the state. The locations include two military installations and several college campuses, allowing citizens to safely dispose of their unused, excess, or expired prescription medications.

By giving New Jerseyans a safe and secure method to dispose of unneeded medications, Project Medicine Drop helps prevent the abuse of these drugs. This initiative also protects New Jersey’s environment by keeping these drugs out of landfills and the water supply. More information about Project Medicine Drop, including the full list of locations.

Montgomery Township thanks the Somerset County Sheriff’s Department for their assistance with Montgomery Township’s Project Medicine Drop program.

Members of the public are invited to visit the Project Medicine Drop sites and drop off any unused prescription medications anonymously and with no questions asked.
