MedDrop - The Best Place to Get Rid of Medicines

Leftover and expired prescriptions and over-the-counter medicines can be found in every household in the county. Last year unintentional poisonings killed more Dane County residents than automobile crashes. Misuse or abuse of prescription, over-the-counter or illicit drugs are the major cause. Pain medication when misused, can be especially fatal.

The Village has a MedDrop Box in the lobby of the Village Hall. It is accessible during regular open hours (Mon-Thu, 8-4 and Fri, 8-12).
