Safe Medication Disposal

Poisoning deaths now surpass traffic crashes as the number one cause of injury-related death in Dane County and across the nation. Sort through medicines regularly and dispose of unused or expired medications to prevent accidental ingestion and abuse. Don't flush medicines down the toilet or put them in the trash. This can be bad for the environment.

In Wisconsin, there's a free drop box service called MedDrop. There are four year-round MedDrop sites in Dane County:

How to use MedDrop

Simply bring your unused or expired medication and place it in the drop box. Empty contents of pill bottles into a zip lock bag and recycle your pill bottles at home. If you have liquids, gels or creams, leave those in their original containers and place them in a zip lock bag as well. Protect yourself by taking off any labels or covering any personal information with a marker.
