    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.
