Oceanport residents can turn in their unwanted or expired medication this weekend as part of Operation Take Back.
Medication can be taken to the Oceanport Police Department or to 274 East Main St. for safe disposal.
Residents can drop off their medication between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 26.
Here are a few guidelines, courtesy of the Long Branch Police Department, which is also participating in the program this weekend:
• The individual may dispose of medication either in its original container or by removing medication from its container and disposing directly into the drug disposal box. If the original container is submitted, the individual should be encouraged to remove the prescription label if it contains any personal identifying information.
• Liquid products, such as cough medicine, should remain sealed in their original container. The depositor should ensure that the cap is tightly sealed to prevent leakage.
• Syringes and other sharp instruments should not be accepted.
