Various departments from the City of West Allis have come together to blog about city news and information. For more information on the City of West Allis, visit their website.
Today, the West Allis Police Department joined the many local police agencies by establishing a 24/7 drop off site at 11301 W. Lincoln Avenue. This drop off site was funded by the West Allis-West Milwaukee Community Coalition. This program is completely anonymous and helps our environment, prevents accidental poisoning, prevents identity theft and helps reduce substance abuse and drug distribution.
Items that are ACCEPTED include: Prescription and Over-the-Counter medications, Vitamins, Medication Samples, Pet Medications, Inhalers and Liquid Medication in a leak proof container.
Items that are NOT ACCEPTED include: Illegal Drugs, Needles, Syringes, Thermometers, Bloody and Infectious Waste, Hydrogen Peroxide, Aerosol Cans, Household Waste, Creams, Ointments and Personal Care Products.
The process is simple. Just bring in “ACCEPTED” medications and place them into the drop box. The medications DO NOT have to be removed from their bottle or packaging.
