MedDrop event this Saturday
Unwanted, unused prescriptions and over-the-counter medicines can be found in every household in the county. We know that it's not safe to keep unneeded medicines in the house – children and others can accidentally take them. But you've also heard that you shouldn't flush medicines down the toilet or put them in the trash. We now know that these medicines are bad for our environment – our water, our lakes and the animals in them.
So... how should you get rid of your medicines?
Bring your unneeded medicine to MedDrop. This free service is available to all Wisconsin residents.
MedDrop event - October 22nd 9 a.m. to 1 p.m, PSC Building, 610 N. Whitney Way
MedDrop will accept:
- Prescription medicine (pills, liquids and creams)
- Over-the-counter medicine (pills, liquids and creams)
- Medications for pets
- Nebulizer solution
Illegal drugs will also be taken, no questions asked. They will be turned over to authorities for immediate disposal.
MedDrop will not accept:
- IV bags
- Oxygen tanks
- Nebulizer machines
Madison and Dane County law enforcement will be on site to make sure controlled substances are handled properly. All materials collected will be disposed of following environmentally responsible procedures.
MedDrop is a service of Safe Communities, a local public/private partnership that sustains joint action by area agencies, businesses, and neighborhoods to SAVE LIVES, prevent injuries and make our community safer. For more information go to MedDropDane.org.
