Unused prescription medications are a disaster waiting to be found, so it’s vital to safely dispose of unneeded and expired prescriptions. You should never flush or drain your unused prescription medications as there are safe Drug Take Back disposal sites available throughout the State of Wisconsin and all sites, including ours offer confidential disposal. Things we’ll take: prescriptions, over the counter medications, ointments, patches, non-aerosol sprays and inhalers. Items we WILL NOT TAKE: illegal drugs, needles/sharps, aerosol cans, bio-hazardous materials (anything containing bodily liquid or blood), mercury thermometers or personal care products ie. shampoo, soap, lotion, sunscreen, etc., and household hazardous waste such as paint, pesticides, oil, gasoline, or any other acids. Twice a year, the Muskego Police Department participates in a designated state-wide Drug Take Back Day. The rest of the year, the drop off bin inside our front lobby is accessible 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
