Project Medicine Drop: The Waldwick Police Department has joined the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs in an effort to halt the diversion and abuse of prescription drugs. A new mailbox style drop box has been installed in the lobby of the Waldwick Public Safety Complex. Residents are encouraged to anonymously deposit unused or expired household medications into the Project Medicine Drop Box, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. This opportunity prevents unused medications from falling into the hands of those who might abuse them. The drop box accepts household medications only: pills, capsules, and pet medications are the only item accepted. Syringes and liquids cannot be accepted.
