GOT DRUGS? As part of a comprehensive plan to fight drug abuse in Brown County, the Village of Allouez is collecting unwanted residential household medications. The purpose of the collections is to prevent theft, avoid poisoning of children and pets, and to stop pollution of our local waterways. Wisconsin Public Service has joined this effort by agreeing to properly destroy these medications.
Together, we can make a difference in the fight against drug abuse.
Brown County residents can now bring their expired & unwanted medications to Allouez Village Hall, located at 1900 Libal Street during business hours. Use the bright GREEN box in the lobby.
What IS collected:
1. Prescription medicines, pills and patches (In sealed bags/removed from bottles and boxes)
2. Prescription ointments and liquids (sealed original containers/ no leaks)
3. Over the counter medications, vitamins & pet medications (no containers)
What is NOT collected:
No Needles / Sharps / Thermometers
No Inhalers / Aerosols / Pressurized Containers
No leaking liquids / Hydrogen Peroxide
No personal hygiene products or chemicals
No Business, Clinic, or Nursing Home Items
No Bagged Liquids of any kind

Unauthorized drops left on premise without permission will be prosecuted
How to package items:
*Pills and capsules must be dumped out of their containers into a clear plastic zipper-close bag. (Sandwich size up to one gallon size bag) Prescription, over-the-counter and health supplement pills and capsules can be bagged in the same bag.
*Liquids must be in their original container (bottle or tube). If the container is leaking or contaminated with the medication, place the container by itself inside of a clear plastic zipper-close bag. It is recommended to either remove or black out the label with permanent marker.
