The Sea Isle City Police Department will host a Prescription Drug Drop-Off Event on Saturday, April 27, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., in the lobby of City Hall, 233 JFK Boulevard.

This free event will allow the public to anonymously and safely dispose of unwanted, unused and expired medications, which will then be destroyed by law enforcement officials.

Residents and visitors are encouraged to clean out their medicine cabinets and participate in this important safety event.

The Sea Isle Police Department reminds everyone that a secure medicine cabinet is a safe medicine cabinet – and with summer visitors on the way, this is the perfect time to safely dispose of unneeded medications.

Needles, sharps and liquid medications will not be accepted on April 27.

Participants are reminded to remove labels and other personal information from their medication bottles before participating in the Prescription Drug Drop-Off Event.

Those who are unable to attend on April 27 are reminded that the Sea Isle City Police Department has a permanent Prescription Drug Drop Box located in the lobby of City Hall, which is accessible 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

The event is being held in cooperation with the Drug Enforcement Agency’s National Take Back Initiative. For more information, contact Sea Isle Detective Sgt. Bill Bradshaw at 263-4311, ext. 2302.
