Drop It In The Box Starting August 6th, 2019

South Orange, NJ (July 30, 2019) Prescription drug abuse is a nationwide epidemic striking people from all walks of life. In response the South Orange Police Department and Board of Trustees are teaming up with the Essex County Alcohol & Drug Abuse Prevention Team (ADAPT) to help everyone in South Orange be a part of the solution by properly disposing of unused medications simply by dropping it in the box. In this case, the box is a secure lock box found in the recently renovated lobby of South Orange Police Headquarters at 201 South Orange Avenue.
