TRASH YOUR STASH! Pemberton Township wants its residents to get rid of their prescription drugs. Not the ones that need but ones that they may be cluttering up their cabinets. Operation Medicine Cabinet will give Pemberton Township residents a chance to get rid of their unwanted medicine on November 14, 2009. Pemberton Township has joined this joint venture between The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) - New Jersey Division, the New Jersey Prevention Network, the New Jersey Attorney General’s Office and the Partnership for a Drug-Free New Jersey (PDFNJ). More than 250 departments statewide are involved. Operation Medicine Cabinet will permit inhabitants of Pemberton Township to dispose of their unused, unwanted or expired prescription and over the counter medications and then Law Enforcement will rid the medications in a safe and non-hazardous manner. Chief Robert Lewandowski explains: “Misuse of prescription drugs is rampant. We all seem to have outdated or no longer needed pills in our medicine cabinet. This program encourages residents to bring them to us so we can dispose of them safely and to keep them out of the hands of those who would misuse them. We will take the pill bottles and destroy the unwanted medicine. We don’t want to know what kind of pills you take or who you are. We just want you to get rid of them in a proper way." The drop off location in Pemberton Township will be the Senior Citizens Center on Brook Street on Saturday November 14 between 10:00AM and 2:00PM.
