On Earth Day, April 22, 2010 a permanent Drug Drop Box opened in partnership with the Oshkosh City Police Department, the WI Department of Justice, the Metropolitan Enforcement Group (MEG), Winnebago County Solid Waste Department, and Morton Pharmacy. The Drug Drop provides a permanent location for disposal of unwanted or expired medications. In May 2011, the Neenah Police Dept added a second Drug Drop Box. Fox Crossing and Menasha also have permanent boxes.
By providing a way to dispose of medications properly, re:TH!NK and our partners in the community helped to improve our water quality, protect children and pets from accidental poisoning and reduce drug abuse and related crime.
