    WOPD Is A Permanent Prescription Drug Drop Off Location

    The permanent collection sites are open year-round so unwanted medications can be safely discarded at the public’s convenience. Residents can dispose of their unused prescription drug medication by placing it in the marked collection sites. Dropping off medication is anonymous and safe. Residents should remove any identifying information from the medication containers, such as their name, address, telephone number and doctor’s name. Medications that are collected are brought to a licensed facility where they are safely disposed. Please be advised that we cannot accept any sharps, epi-pens, inhalers or items containing mercury in our unwanted prescription drop box.
