Prescription Drugs 

The Brown County Port & Resource Recovery Department does NOT accept prescription drugs.

Waste pharmaceuticals are a far reaching issue that affects more than just hazardous material programs. 
Unused drugs present opportunities for environmental contamination, drug abuse and accidental poisonings.
Taking the easy way out and simply throwing your unused medications in the trash or flushing down the drain can lead to significant environmental problems.


Proper disposal through collection events is necessary to insure the drugs are completely destroyed by incineration.
