Hamilton to have unwanted drug disposal

Hamilton Township will be bringing a national prescription drug disposal program to the town this weekend, according to a press release.

On Saturday, people who have expired or otherwise unwanted prescription drugs can bring them to the Hamilton Police Division Headquarters at 1270 Whitehorse-Mercerille Road.

The initiative, part of a Department of Justice program that disposed for more than 275 tons of unwanted prescriptions in April, is meant to prevent the misuse or illegal resale of such drugs, according to the release.

It is called "National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day" and runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Residents looking for more information can call (609) 581-4000.

No word on whether Robbinsville has a similar program going on, though I doubt the Hamilton police would mind those residents showing up.
