Prescription Drug Collection

As part of a comprehensive plan to fight drug abuse in Brown County, the Sheriff's Office is collecting unwanted residential household medications. The purpose of the collections is to prevent theft, avoid poisoning of children and pets, and to stop pollution of our local waterways. Wisconsin Public Service has joined this effort by agreeing to properly destroy these medications.

Together, we can make a difference in the fight against drug abuse. 

Private or non-profit clinics, medical facilities, hospitals, veterinarian officers, or alike are not permitted to utilize this program for the disposal of their unwanted/expired medications.
