Prescription Drug Take Back Day

Patrolman Remo D'Alessandro, Councilwoman Loretta Gragnani and Patrolman Matthew Ruggier

PARSIPPANY — The Parsippany-Troy Hills Police Department was taking back unwanted prescription drugs on Saturday, September 8 in front of the Harmon Face Values Store, 3189 Route 46, located in the Morris Hills Shopping Center.

They did not accept liquids, needles or sharps, patches and pills. This drop off was only for individual citizens. Businesses that deal with pharmaceuticals, doctors, health care providers, and pharmacies are prohibited from disposing of pharmaceuticals at the collection site under FDA guidelines.

During the drug take back event, members of the Parsippany PBA Local 131 sold pink ribbon pins with the Parsippany Police Department patch on them for $5.00. The money raised through the sales of the pins will be donated to multiple cancer related charities at the end of October.

If you did not attend the event and would like to purchase a pin, please email and they can assist you.
