Medicines play an important role in treating certain conditions and diseases, but they must be taken with care. Unused portions of these medicines must be disposed of properly to avoid personal and environmental harm. Rock County has multiple Prescription Drop Box locations, and JM4C has safety options for medications that are still being used.
Prescription for Safety
Secure: Safeguard your medications. Lock them up! JM4C offers free home medication lock boxes as a safe and secure place to store your prescription drugs.
Monitor: Would you know if someone took a few? Be able to say “Yes!”
Dispose: Use a drop box to safely get rid of expired or unused medicine. The map above shows the Rock County Drop Box locations.
Talk to your kids
It’s important that our children learn about the use and abuse of prescription drugs.
