Help prevent drug abuse, overdose, and keep our water supply clean by participating in the Manitowoc County Drug Disposal Program. Residents may bring unwanted drugs and medications to these programs free of charge.
“Flushing unwanted medications down the toilet, or in the trash, has added to the problem of medications in our water supplies.” – Northeast Recycling Council, Inc.
“Unused medications are being used inappropriately, stolen, or ending up on the street.” – Metro Drug Task Force Commander
Remove pills from original container and put them in a sealed “Ziploc” style bag that is quart size or smaller before placing in the drug drop box. Empty pill containers may be placed in your home recycling or trash. Liquid, powder, and cream medications should remain in the original bottles with caps tightened.
