Hoboken Police Taking Meds This Weekend
We stand by that headline—because it’s accurate…
The Hoboken Police Department is participating in the “National Take Back Initiative,” which is sponsored by the Drug Enforcement Agency. The nationwide initiative, taking place on Saturday, September 26 between the hours of 10am and 2pm, aims to provide a safe, convenient and responsible means of disposing prescription drugs, while also educating the general public about the potential for abuse of medications.
The drop-off sites will be a place where residents will be able to turn in unused or expired medication for safe disposal. The Hoboken Police Department will have drop-off stations throughout the city, focusing on senior citizen residences, in an effort to make the program more accessible to those whom might otherwise have difficulty responding to one or two fixed locations.
There will be a fixed location at Police Headquarters during the entire time. Additionally, there will be two moving sites that will spend over an hour at various senior resident buildings.
The drop off locations and times are as follows:
- Hoboken Police Department, 106 Hudson Street: 10:00am to 2:00pm
- 311 13th Street & 221 Jackson Street: 10:00am to 11:20am
- 400 First Street & 220 Adams Street: 11:20am to 12:40pm
- 76 Bloomfield Street & 514 Madison Street: 12:40pm to 2:00pm
