Greater Milwaukee Area Medicine Collection Sites

The Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District (MMSD) and Take Back My Meds urge you to protect Lake Michigan and combat the opioid crisis by safely disposing of your unused prescription medicine at free drop boxes.

Flushing unused medicine down the toilet or placing it in the trash sends it to Lake Michigan and our waterways, our source of drinking water, and can harm wildlife.  Our water reclamation facilities are not designed to break down medicine.

There’s only one safe way to dispose of unused prescription medications: at a drug take-back site.

Wisconsin Lt. Governor Mandela Barnes discusses the importance of keeping medication out of waterways and combatting the opioid crisis.
