Medical disposal safe donated to Cinnaminson Police Department

Residents can now drop off unused and unwanted medications 24 hours a day

The Cinnaminson Police Department has partnered with Rite Aid’s KidCent Program. The KidCent Foundation is committed to supporting the safety and well being of children in local communities. Through this program, Rite Aid has donated a medical disposal safe to the police department.

Residents can now drop off prescription medication at the department 24 hours a day and seven days a week. The safe medical disposal unit is located in the lobby of the station. During weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., there is a secretary who will let residents into the lobby of the station. On weekends and after hours, residents have to use the call box to have a police officer come into the station to allow access.

Accepted medications are any prescription medications as well as over the counter medications. Not accepted items are illegal drugs, needles, lotions or liquids, inhalers, aerosol cans and hydrogen peroxide. It is recommended that residents remove any labels on the prescriptions bottles.

For more information, contact the police department’s safe medication disposal coordinator Sgt. William Obuchowski at (856) 735–2347 or wobuchowski@cinnaminsonpolice.org.
