The Livingston Police Department has installed a permanent drug drop box that will allow residents to safely dispose of unwanted drugs 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The department worked in conjunction with The Alcohol and Drug Abuse Prevention Team of Essex County (ADAPT) as well as the Livingston Municipal Alliance Committee (LMAC) to have the drop box placed in the lobby of police headquarters.

The box was designed and painted by students from the Livingston High School National Art Honor Society. Residents may dispose of unwanted or expired prescription and over-the-counter medications, including pet medications.

New or used syringes cannot be accepted. For information on proper disposal of syringes, visit the NJ Department of Health at www.state.nj.us/health
