MedDrop - The Best Place to Get Rid of Medicines

 Do you know that 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

This drive-through, drop-off service is available free to all households at three locations:
  • Fitchburg City Hall 5520 Lacy Road (Fitchburg)
  • Public Service Commission Building 610 N. Whitney Way (Madison)
  • Sun Prairie Waste Water Treatment Plant 3040 Bailey Road (Sun Prairie)
