Healthy Sheboygan County to Host Prescription Drug Take Back Day October 23rd

Healthy Sheboygan County, in cooperation with the Wisconsin Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), will hold a Prescription Drug Take Back Day on Saturday, October 23rd  from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM at four locations throughout Sheboygan County.

“I strongly encourage Wisconsinites to ensure that their unused medications are properly disposed of,” said Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul. “Through proper disposal, we can prevent prescription drugs from being diverted and help prevent addiction.”

This effort will continue to bring focus to the issue of prescription painkiller abuse in Wisconsin. The Drug Take Back Day provides a safe, convenient and responsible means of disposal, while also educating the community about the potential abuse and consequences of improper storage and disposal of these medications.

Unused or expired medicine should never be flushed or poured down the drain. Water reclamation facilities are not designed to remove all of them and trace amounts of pharmaceuticals are showing up in rivers and lakes.

The four take-back locations in Sheboygan County will be open to accept unused medications from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM:

  • Plymouth – Generations, 1500 Douglas Dr., Plymouth, 53073
  • Random Lake – Fire Department, 718 Spring St., Random Lake, 53075
  • Sheboygan – HSHS St. Nicholas Hospital, 3100 Superior Ave. Sheboygan, 53081
  • Sheboygan Falls Police Department – 375 Buffalo St. Sheboygan Falls 53085
If Sheboygan County residents are unable to make it to one of the Drug Take Back Day locations, unused medications can also be dropped off any day at one of the permanent medication drop-boxes, located at six  police departments throughout Sheboygan County:
  • Elkhart Lake Police Department, 40 Pine Street, Elkhart Lake
  • Kohler Police Department, 319 Highland Drive, Kohler
  • Plymouth Police Department, 128 Smith Street, Plymouth
  • Sheboygan Police Department, 1315 N. 23rd Street, Sheboygan
  • Sheboygan Falls Police Department, 375 Buffalo Street, Sheboygan Falls
  • Sheboygan County Sheriff’s Department, 525 N 6th Street, Sheboygan
