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.)

For more information, please contact the FLPD at 201-592-3700.
