You can clean out your medicine cabinets and help prevent the misuse of prescription drugs. Door and Kewaunee County law enforcement agencies will participate again in the Drug Take-Back Day across Wisconsin. The Wisconsin Department of Justice is promoting the opportunity for you to dispose of unwanted and unused medications at Drug Take-Back and drug disposal locations. The Door County Sheriff’s Office will collect unused prescriptions, over-the-counter medications, ointments, patches, non-aerosol sprays, inhalers, creams, vials, and pet medications for disposal. You can drop off any old medications from 10 am until 2 pm Saturday at either the Brussels-Union-Gardner Fire Department or the Door County Sheriff’s Office in Sturgeon Bay. Door County Chief Deputy Pat McCarty explained that this disposal method beats others, like throwing drugs in the trash or flushing them.
Both Door and Kewaunee County have drop boxes available for proper disposal year-round.
