MERCER COUNTY SHERIFF KEMLER TO COLLECT UNUSED-EXPIRED PRESCRIPTION DRUGS AND VAPE DEVICES ON SATURDAY OCTOBER 24

Mercer County Sheriff Jack Kemler announces the opportunity to dispose of unneeded and expired prescription drugs during the National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day on Saturday, October 24, 2020.

The goal is to help local residents to rid their medicine cabinets of unused and easily abused opioid painkillers, in addition to any other unneeded prescription medications.

Mercer County residents can easily drop off unused and expired prescription pills, by bringing them to the parking lot across from the Mercer County Administration Building at 640 South Broad Street in Trenton, between 10:00 A.M. and 2:00 P.M. 

The disposal event will also collect vape pens and other e-cigarette devices, however ONLY after all batteries have been removed prior by the individual. Syringes, sharp instruments, liquid medications, or solutions cannot be accepted. Participants in the drop-off are asked to follow social distancing rules.

“The fall season is a good time to gather up any unused or expired prescriptions from your medicine cabinet, especially dangerous opioid painkillers,” said Sheriff Kemler. “Addiction or accidental use can too easily begin right from your own medicine cabinet,” added Kemler.

National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day aims to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible method for disposing of unneeded and expired prescription pills. The program is conducted by the Mercer County Sheriff’s Office with the assistance of the Mercer County Prosecutor’s Office and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration.

For more information, contact the Mercer County Sheriff’s Office Programs Section at 609-278-7159.

TCNJ will conduct all classes online for a period of two weeks following Spring break

TCNJ ISSUED A MESSAGE TO ALL STUDENTS

Kathryn A. Foster

President

Over the last several weeks, the coronavirus has made its way to our region, which I know is a concern to many. As of this writing, there are no presumptive or confirmed cases of COVID-19 on our campus and the college continues to take a number of precautionary measures to keep our community healthy. Nonetheless, given the progression of the disease, it seems highly likely that it will continue to spread and the number of cases will climb.

The College of New Jersey will join with several other institutions in adopting the practice of social distancing being advocated by public health officials. Beginning the Monday following Spring Break (March 23), and continuing for a period of two weeks, TCNJ will conduct all classes online. While the campus will remain open, students are strongly encouraged to stay home. Students who choose to return will practice social distancing and also take their classes online. Anyone who has been in contact with someone carrying COVID-19 or is exhibiting symptoms, should self-isolate and notify their doctor or Student Health Services immediately.

During this time, the college will limit large and high-density gatherings; events, including athletic events, will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis and may be modified, postponed, or canceled as needed to promote health and safety. Campus resources will remain available to faculty, staff, and students. We will communicate additional changes as necessary.
Campus leaders are in the process of finalizing protocols for this plan. Interim Provost William Keep will follow up in the next 24 hours with specifics. Faculty and staff will receive information about expectations for employees in that message. Staff supervisors will determine situations where employees may telecommute from home.
