Drug Disposal Program

The Waukesha Police Department continues to recognize the growing abuse of opiates in the community and the need for solutions. By working in partnerships with the community to provide services and working towards solving emerging social issues, the Waukesha Police Department has officially launched a Drug Disposal Program.

Purpose & Goal
  • The purpose of this drug disposal program is to provide a safe, secure, and anonymous collection and destruction of unused and unwanted prescription and non-prescription medications.
  • The ultimate goal of this program aims to decrease the access to unwanted or expired medication. The agency is hopeful that citizens will take advantage of this convenient service which has eliminated the obstacles for community members to properly dispose of their medications.
