Drug Take Back Day This Saturday, October 28th

The Fond du Lac Health Department is hosting a Drug Take Back Day this Saturday October 28th.

The department says Drug Take Back Day is meant to provide people with a safe, easy and responsible way to dispose of their unwanted or expired medications and to educate the community about improper storage and disposal.

While the drug drop off boxes are available all year round, Drug Take Back Day is a day to bring it to the attention of everyone to go through their medicine cabinet and find the unused, unwanted and expired medications, and get rid of them.

Wisconsin ranked number one in the United States for the 2023 Spring Drug Take Back Day, per the Wisconsin Department of Justice. The state collected the most unwanted prescription medications on the day, totaling to more than 55,000 pounds. Since the Drug Take Back Day program began in 2010, Wisconsin has collected over one million pounds in unwanted medications.
