The Brown County Sheriff's Department offers county residents the opportunity to properly discard prescription drugs at their new office, 2464 Development Drive. Drop-off times are held every Tuesday and Thursday from 12:30pm to 2:00pm.
Accepted materials include pills, liquids, salves, powders, inhalers and pet meds. No sharps or biological material. Collections are for Brown County Residents only and offered at no cost to participants.
Waste pharmaceuticals are a far reaching issue. These unused drugs present opportunities for environmental contamination, drug abuse and accidental poisonings. Proper disposal through collection events is necessary to insure the drugs are completely destroyed by incineration. Taking the easy way out and simply throwing your unused medications in the trash or flushing down the drain can lead to significant environmental problems.
