Medication/Sharps Disposal

Medication Collection

Kenosha County is now offering permanent locations for residents to dispose of unused, unwanted, and expired medication. The program is free-of-charge and requires no pre-registration. This is an effort to prevent prescription drug abuse and accidental poisonings in Kenosha County as well as help protect local waterways. View a Medication Disposal brochure in English.
