City of Sun Prairie hosting ‘Prescription Drug Take-Back Day’ – WMTV – NBC15

MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) – The City of Sun Prairie will participate in a National Prescription Drug Take Back Day later in Oct, Sun Prairie police announced Thursday.
The event will be held Oct. 29 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at 300 E. Main St in the City of Sun Prairie, according to organizers. Those with unused or unwanted pills will be able to drop them off at one of the drug disposal sites, including the one in Sun Prairie.
Organizers say the event will bring attention to the issue of prescription medication or drug abuse in Wisconsin.
“Wisconsinites who participate in Drug Take Back Day are contributing to the fight against the opioid epidemic,” Attorney General Josh Kaul said.
Kaul said Drug Take Back Day offers a safe, convenient and responsible way to dispose unused or unwanted drugs, while also educating the community about the potential abuse and consequences of improper storage and disposal of certain medications.
Sun Prairie PD offered a reminder that unused or expired medicine should never be flushed or poured down the drain as water treatment facilities are not designed to remove all pharmaceuticals.
As far as medications you can drop off, event organizers say they will accept:

According to Sun Prairie PD, (their wording)
Many drug disposal boxes are open year-round, police said.
