Wisconsin DOJ and DNR Team Up to Promote National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day

Thursday, April 17th, 2014 -- 12:41 PM

-The Wisconsin Department of Justice and the Department of Natural Resources are teaming up to promote National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day.

People can drop off their unused drugs on April 26 at collection sites across the state. The day is designed to get unused, expired and unwanted drugs out of people's homes to prevent opiate addictions, which police say often lead to heroin abuse.

Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen and DNR Secretary Cathy Stepp have issued a joint statement urging people to use the collection sites.

Van Hollen says the day gives everyone a chance to fight back against heroin. Stepp says using the collection sites means fewer prescription drugs won't get flushed or discarded in a landfill, reducing harm to the environment and wildlife.

Here in Clark County, the drop off locations for your unused prescription medications are Scott and Lori?s Family Foods in Owen or Gordy?s County Market in Neillsville. The event is from 10am to 2pm on Saturday, April 26th. The service is free and anonymous.

Feel free to contact us with questions and/or comments.
