Horicon, WI: In an effort to remove drugs from the streets and promote the proper disposal of prescription medications, the City of Horicon, Dodge County Sheriff’s Department and the Kiwanis Club are hosting a prescription drug drop off on July 10, 2010 from 9:00am-12:00pm at the Horicon Public safety Building.
The intent of the drive-thru drop off is to help citizens properly dispose of prescription medications that are old, left over or found. The removal and proper disposal of these medications will help reduce the potential for prescription medications falling into the wrong hands causing an increased potential for abuse or addiction.
Proper disposal is also important in reducing the pollution to groundwater and waterways which are being negatively affected by these medications. Often time’s people will dispose of their old medications by flushing them down the toilet or just throwing them in the garbage.
“I hope the citizens of the Horicon area and beyond will take advantage of this free and confidential disposal project that can help reduce the readily available supply of abused prescription medications from the streets.” stated Lt. Adrian Bump of the Horicon Police Department.
Anyone interested in more information related to prescription medications and the dangers of abuse or pollution is encouraged to contact the Horicon Police Department at (920)485-3555 or visit us online at ci.horicon.wi.us where you can email us directly.
