Prescription Medication Drop Off

The West Allis Police Department has a 24/7 prescription medication drop off box in the front lobby of the police department, 11301 W. Lincoln Av.  This drop off box was funded by the West Allis-West Milwaukee Community Coalition.

This program is completely anonymous and helps our environment, prevents accidental poisoning, prevents identity theft, and helps reduce substance abuse and drug distribution.

Items that are ACCEPTED include: Prescription and over-the-counter medications, vitamins, medication samples, pet medications, inhalers and liquid medication in a leak proof container.

Items that are NOT ACCEPTED include: Illegal drugs, needles, syringes, thermometers, bloody and infectious waste, hydrogen peroxide, aerosol cans, household waste, creams, ointments and personal care products.

The process is simple. Just bring in "ACCEPTED" medications and place them into the green drop box in the center of the lobby.

While unpackaged pills and medications should not be placed in the drop box, it is helpful to combine loose pills into a single secure bag or container that can be deposited into the drop box and to discard excessive packaging before depositing pills and medication into the drop box.
