Operation Take Back
The Saddle Brook Brook Police Department hosted
an Operation Take Back local collection site as part of the Nationwide Operation
Take Back Medicine Disposal Day sponsored by the DEA
This initiative, open to all residents, was organized to encourage local community residents to properly dispose of their unused, unwanted and expired medicine. Residents can bring unwanted, expired or unused medicines for disposal. We ask that you remove any labels with personal information from prescription bottles and insure that bottles containing any liquid medication / drugs are properly sealed. There are no forms to fill out and the process is completely anonymous.
Syringes, needles and other "sharps" will not be collected. They should be disposed of in the proper manner for the particular item.
Due to very strict Federal guidelines and laws concerning prescription medication, we can only accept medication for disposal during the stated time on the specific date.
