Lodi Police Department announces a partnership with the N.J. Division of Consumer Affairs

This program began Monday October 13th, 2014

Lodi Police will begin taking unwanted/used/old medications 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Project Medicine Drop allows residents to stop in to Police HQ and drop off their unwanted medicines. The Drug Enforcement Agency’s Operation Take Back was a huge success over the years, but that program has ended. NJ has now allowed for local access to this program.

Residents can drop off their unwanted medications at any time, anonymously. Just walk into Police HQ, and you will see a large painted mail box with the Project Medicine Drop logo on it. Drop off your unwanted meds and thats it! As always, NO NEEDLES OR SYRINGES OF ANY KIND WILL BE ACCEPTED.

This program began Monday October 13th, 2014.
