The Glendale Police Department has been awarded a grant form CVS/pharmacy to install a Drug Collection Unit. The unit is located at the police department located at 5909 N. Milwaukee River Parkway and provides residents with a safe and environmentally responsible way to dispose of unwanted, unused or expired medication, including controlled substances.
The Collection Unit is intended to reduce the amount unneeded medicine in residents' homes and decrease prescription drug abuse, which has soared in recent years, especially among teenagers.
Glendale's new Drug Collection Unit site is open to the public every day and drugs can be dropped off with no questions asked.
There are also various locations that will take back your medications around Milwaukee County.
