April 30, 2016 all-day

April 30, 2016. Prescription Drug Take Back Event. Statewide Wisconsin. The Prescription Drug Take-Back Day goal is to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposal of prescription medications, while also educating the general public about the potential for abuse of these medications. Unused prescription medications in homes create a public health and safety concern, because they can be accidentally ingested, stolen, misused, and abused.

Participating law enforcement agencies can host one or more collection sites at locations and times of their choosing. Law Enforcement agencies do not need to host a take-back event in order to participate in this program. Agencies offering a permanent drug drop box can turn over the collected drugs to DOJ for disposal.
