Drug Drop Off Box
In 2011 the Watertown Police Department in cooperation with Watertown Regional Medical Center established a permanent drop-off site for unwanted or expired pharmaceutical drugs and over-the-counter medication. Our drop-off container is blue and is located in the right corner of the Police Department inner lobby at 106 Jones Street, Watertown, WI. Public access to the drop off container is available 24 hours a day.
DROP OFF YOUR UNWANTED & EXPIRED MEDICATIONS
City residents are permitted to drop off their unwanted drugs – which include prescription, non-prescription, vitamins and veterinary/pet drugs – for proper disposal. Hospice, group homes and assisted-living homes also may bring their drugs to the drop site, but hospitals, clinics and pharmacies are required to do their own disposal of pharmaceuticals. No sharps/needles, radioactive materials, oxygen tanks or nebulizers are permitted to be disposed at the drop-off site. Please contact the Watertown Health Department for proper disposal guidelines of these items.
The drop box is an excellent opportunity to dispose of unwanted or expired medications, as well as protecting our environment from improper disposal.
