Village of Ashwaubenon residents can now safely dispose of their old or unused prescription medication here at Village Hall. The RX Drop is located in the Ashwaubenon Public Safety lobby and is available Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
This project was financed by UnitedHealthcare and is working in partnership with WPS, Brown County Port & Solid Waste and Partners In Education.
The disposal of unused medications poses a complex problem faced by nearly everyone who has ever received them. Unused medications in the home pose health and safety risks for a variety of reasons. Medications that are not safely stored can be accessible to children and may result in accidental poisonings. Medications that are thrown out in the garbage or flushed down the toilet pose hazards to the ecosystem due to the chemical compounds found in these medications.
