EGG HARBOR TWP. -

It's a threat to public safety and health — and it could be as close as your medicine cabinet.

The culprit, prescription drug abuse.

Now to combat the growing problem, police are giving the public the opportunity to dispose of any unused or unwanted prescription drugs, no questions asked.  In addition to prescription drug abuse, accidental poisoning and overdose are possible consequences of using expired drugs or drugs not prescribed to you.

Police also say traditional methods of drug disposal, flushing down the toilet or throwing them out, poses both safety and health risks.
