In New Jersey, every municipality is required to be served by a local health department that meets the requirements of state public health laws and regulations. The Borough of Fort Lee’s Health Department is recognized by the New Jersey Department of Health as the provider of public health services within their jurisidiction.

The Fort Lee Board of Health is a legally constituted, autonomous body appointed by the Mayor to make health policy for the Borough. The Board is empowered by State statute to enact local ordinances to protect the public health and to provide programs in five major areas, including: 

  • Administration

Drug Drop OffThe effort to stop the abuse and diversion of prescription drugs begins at home - and must include the opportunity for local consumers to dispose of their unused medications safely and securely at any time throughout the year.  The Fort Lee Police Department has a box located in the main lobby of its headquarters at 1327 16th Street, Fort Lee.  The box can be accessed seven days a week, to drop off unneeded and expired medications - and keep them away from those at risk of abusing them. The drop box accepts solid pharmaceuticals such as pills, capsules, patches, inhalers and pet medications. (They cannot accept syringes or liquids.)
