April 29 is National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day, with hundreds of pharmacies and police stations in New Jersey serving as deposit points for unused and unneeded medications. Berkeley Township goes it one better, collecting meds and offering screenings and services during a free health fair on May 2.

It'll be in Holiday City Berkeley Club House 2, Jamaica Boulevard, 10 AM 'til 12 Noon, with Berkeley Township police accepting unused prescriptions and Ocean County Board of Health staffers offering free checkups.

All that, plus information provided by members of the Ocean County Prosecutor's and Surrogate's Offices, Sheriff's Department, Senior Services and Consumer Affairs, and Berkeley Township Fire Prevention Bureau, Recreation and Recycling Departments, and Municipal Alliance.

"May is Older Americans month, so we are looking for additional ways to help out our seniors this month," Mayor Carmen Amato said.
