WHY TAKE BACK YOUR UNUSED MEDICATIONS?
70% of opioid addictions start at home – very often from unused medicine that is left in medicine cabinets.
Flushing unused medicine down the toilet or placing it in the trash only sends it to Lake Michigan – the source of our drinking water – because waste treatment systems are not designed to break down medicine.
There’s only one safe way to dispose of unused prescription medications: at a drug take back site.
Luckily, that's never been easier for Milwaukee County residents. On any day of the year, you can use a free drop box or free, postage-free envelope to responsibly dispose of your unused medications. Visit our home page to see a map of the secure drug take back locations and envelope providers in Milwaukee County.
Take back your meds today and save the life of someone you love.
