Winnebago County Health Department:

Winnebago County Health nurses and department heads have been instrumental in the evolution of past temporary take backs into a permanent drug drop box. While temporary take-backs may continually be offered in our area, this permanent box answers the request citizens have made for an easy access disposal site available at all times.  WCHD will be the lead contact for this program and coordinate emptying and maintenance of the box coordinating police and pharmacists as needed.

Local Law Enforcement:   

The local police agencies have partnered to provide publicly-accessible locations inside the Oshkosh Safety Building, Neenah Police Department, Menasha Police Department and Fox Crossing Police Department. Any of these locations is where citizens can safely and anonymously drop unwanted and expired medications. They will monitor the box and assist in emptying its contents. Law enforcement knows that taking care of the “little things” like disposal of  outdated meds, will help to prevent the more serious crimes from occurring in our neighborhoods, schools, businesses and community.

Winnebago County Solid Waste:

Development of the drug drop box simply would not be possible without the support of Solid Waste. They make arrangements for the complex task of bulk disposal and collaborate with WCHD to create fundraising activities that sustain program costs. This fits in with their goal of making waste removal cost effective fro Winnebago County customers.
