The Mantua Police Department participates in “Project Medicine Drop”, which is a program where “prescription drug boxes” are installed at participating New Jersey Police departments. Installed in the lobby is a locked metal “mailbox” permanently affixed to the floor. It is easily recognizable as it has prominent “Project Medicine Drop” logos all over it.

Residents or non-residents can drop off unused and/or expired medications safely, securely, and anonymously at 401 Main St, Mantua, NJ 08051. It is available seven days per week, 365 days per year (however, after 4:30 PM on weekdays and all weekends/holidays you will need to utilize the red phone in the vestibule to contact a dispatcher to have an officer let you in).

We maintain custody of the deposited drugs and dispose of them according to established procedures for the custody and destruction of controlled dangerous substances. The quantity of discarded drugs is reported to the Division of Consumer Affairs on a quarterly basis.

Please visit the Project Medicine Drop website for more information.
