Drug take-back events running Oct. 27-28
For Hub City Times
MARSHFIELD — On Oct. 28, National Drug Enforcement Administration and Wisconsin Department of Justice will coordinate a prescription drug take-back day throughout Wisconsin. This initiative promotes a safe and convenient way to dispose of unused prescription medications while educating communities on the dangers of storing unused medications in homes. Possessing these medications in your home could lead to the medication being accidentally ingested, stolen, abused and/or misused.
Unused or expired medication should never be flushed or poured down the drain. This can cause contamination and pollution in our groundwater. The safest way to dispose of unused medication is to bring it to a drop off location and/or participate in a prescription drug take-back event.
You may participate in a drug take-back by visiting the following Marshfield locations:
- Marshfield Clinic Health System lobby: Friday, Oct. 27 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
- Shopko parking lot: Saturday, Oct. 28 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Marshfield’s permanent drop-off locations are located in the Marshfield Police Department, Marshfield Clinic Health System Main Center- first floor pharmacy and Central Avenue pharmacy.
