Properly Dispose of Leftover Medications at Paramus Police Headquarters

If you have been wondering what to do with those outdated vials of pills in the medicine cabinet: they can be safely disposed of at the Paramus Police Station located in the municipal complex on Carlough Drive. A clearly marked "box" is located in the reception area (see photo below). Outdated, unnecessary medications disposed of properly, keep drugs out of the "wrong" hands. It also keeps them out of the water supply.
