A new unwanted drug/medications drop box has been added at the Kiel Police Department.

A new drug drop box has been added at the Kiel Police Department.

They will accept unwanted medications Mondays through Fridays from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Previously, Kiel residents utilized a once-a-year collection event to safely dispose of their unwanted medications.

To use the drug drop box, empty pills into a Ziplock bag that is quart size or smaller and deposit them into the opening. Liquid and powder medications can remain in their containers, but should have their caps tightened. For safety and efficiency, do not drop any sharps, thermometers, or pill bottles/boxes into the drug drop box.

Before bringing medications in, make sure to review and follow the complete guidelines posted at https://www.co.manitowoc.wi.us/departments/recycling-center/drug-disposal/.
