Drug Drop

When prescription medications are taken incorrectly or abused, substantial health risks are involved.  Rates of prescription drug abuse are continuing to rise and studies show that abused drugs are often obtained from family members or friends, and are often taken from home medicine cabinets. 

Proper disposal of prescription medications can help prevent drug abuse by decreasing the availability.  Prescription medications should not be flushed down the toilet or thrown in the trash.  Studies show that these methods pose environmental risks, especially to our drinking water.  When medications are expired or no longer needed, you can dispose of them at your local drug drop sites located on the right side of this webpage.  These drugs will then be handled by law enforcement, leading to the ultimate proper destruction.                      


With the growing concern for misuse of prescription medication and water quality, we are proud to announce that Fond du Lac opened the first 24/7 free standing drug disposal site in Wisconsin on November 11, 2008.

Remove pills from the original container and place them in a sealed "ziplock" style bag before placing them in the Drug Drop.  Empty pill bottles may be disposed of in your home recycling.  Liquid medications should remain in original bottles.
