AARP, in collaboration with the City of Perth Amboy and the Perth Amboy Police Department, will be hosting a Shred Event and Prescription Medication Take-Back Day. Bring any confidential paper documents to our event, and we’ll shred them for free. All attendees are invited to drop off any unused and expired prescription medications anonymously, no questions asked.  For safety reasons, the Project Medicine Drop box can only accept solid medications such as pills, patches, inhalers, and similar objects and cannot accept liquids, medical waste, or syringes.
