Montville Township's Drug Take-Back Program -  One of the ways the Montville Township Health Department is helping to address the opioid epidemic is to raise awareness among residents of the Drug Take-Back Program. Residents can drop off their unused, unwanted, or expired medications anonymously into a safe and secure receptacle in the lobby of the Public Safety Building, which is available 24/7. Removing these medications from homes prevents them from falling either accidentally or willfully into the wrong hands, and also protects the environment. Please help spread the word and clean out your cabinets TODAY!
