10th Take Back Day Event Hits Hudson County, Last Year 309 Tons of Rx Drugs Collected

It’s that time of year again, where you can turn in your unused prescription medications, no questions asked! The Take Back Event will be hosted in Hudson County, according to NJ. But why you ask?

Millions have been exposed to opiates, and other prescription medications, from the confines of family members’ cabinets. The Take Back Event helps families and friends to ensure their prescriptions will not be sampled by curious teens, or others. Safely disposing of unused prescription medications is a hurdle in our nation, so to solve that six Hudson County Police Departments are helping to take back back what you didn’t mean to leave out there in the first place!

Participating in the Take Back Event helps spread awareness about the dangers of leaving prescription medications unattended- which many people don’t stop to consider. (We didn’t exactly get an introductory course in this stuff for school!) The following Police Departments will have drop-off collection bins available for use in Hudson County, according to NJ:

 

  • Hoboken Police Department – 400 First St., Hoboken
  • Hoboken Police Department – 106 Hudson St., Hoboken
  • Hoboken Police Department – 221 Jackson St., Hoboken
  • Hoboken Police Department – 311 13th St., Hoboken
  • Kearny Police Department – 237 Laurel Ave., Kearny
  • Bayonne Police Department – 630 Ave. C, Bayonne

 

If you have prescription medications laying around your bathroom, head on over to the event, and help spread addiction awareness everywhere!
