The Dodge County Sheriff’s Office will once again be participating in a statewide Prescription Drug Take Back Event on Saturday, October 22, 2016. Please bring your unwanted, unneeded, or expired medications to the Dodge County Sheriff’s Office and dispose of them in the Drug Drop Box in the lower level of the Sheriff’s Office.
The Sheriff’s Office asks that you remove all solid, non-liquid medications from their container and dispose of them in a clear sealable plastic bag. Blister packages are acceptable as well. Liquids, creams, and sprays must be in their original packaging.
Help us to keep our community safe by disposing of these medications in a way that will keep them out of the hands of those they are not intended for, is safe for the environment, and yet convenient for everyone. Remember that the abuse of prescription medication is dangerous and many times leads to other more serious addictions such as heroin addiction. As always, there is no fee to dispose of your medications.
Please remember that the Dodge County Sheriff’s Office Drop Box is always available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year.
Attached to this press release you will find a flyer of participating Law Enforcement Agencies in and around Dodge County who also have Drug Drop Boxes. Those agencies include Police Departments in Beaver Dam, Columbus, Juneau, Lomira, Mayville, Watertown, and Waupun.
