Suspension of the Street Sweeper from 12/11/17 - 3/12/18

Date Published: 12/04/2017

The Governing Body of the City of Lambertville, in the County of Hunterdon, in the State of New Jersey hereby authorizes the suspension of the street sweeper beginning December 11, 2017 and resume on March 12, 2018, (weather permitting).
The Lambertville City Police Department has become the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs’ newest partner in the Project Medicine Drop unused or expired medication disposal program. Both residents and non-residents may now dispose of medications anonymously, seven days a week, 365 days a year, at the new drop box in the lobby of Police Headquarters located at 349 North Main Street, Lambertville. The drop box is accessible weekdays between 9:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. At all other times people wishing to dispose of medications will be provided access by reaching an officer via the call box located next to the entrance door to headquarters.

“The importance of this resource cannot be overstated as prescription drug abuse is a growing epidemic in this country that results in an estimated 15,000 deaths annually,” Police Director Bruce Cocuzza said. The DEA has reported that prescription drugs, including opioids and antidepressants, account for more overdose deaths than illegal drugs such as cocaine, heroin and methamphetamines.  The program provides a safe, secure and convenient way to dispose of prescription drugs that also helps to prevent addiction, harmful overdoses or accidental death.

Mayor DelVecchio added “We have received many inquiries from people wishing to dispose of unused or expired medications in a way that is both environmentally safe and ensures that the drugs will not get into the wrong hands. This program will absolutely accomplish those goals.”

City Councilman Wardell Sanders said, “Medicines that languish in home medicine cabinets are highly susceptible to theft and misuse.   Even if we keep only a few pills from ending up at pill parties or in our waterways, this effort will have served a valuable purpose.” 

The Project Medicine Drop program, introduced in 2011, is fashioned after the US Drug Enforcement Administration’s “National Take Back Initiative,” an annual campaign that offers medication disposal to the public on selected dates each year.
