Village of Rosendale Announces 9th Drug Drop Box
in Fond du Lac County
The Village of Rosendale and Drug Free Communities of Fond du Lac County invites the public to attend a ribbon cutting and tutorial to introduce Rosendale residents to a new Drug Drop Box on Thursday, December 15 at 3:30 pm. The Village recently acquired and installed a Drug Drop Box in the lobby of the Rosendale Municipal Building, 211 N. Grant Street, Rosendale. The public is encouraged and welcome to attend.
"We would like the residents of our community to see the location and a demonstration of how to properly dispose of unwanted and no longer needed medications. In addition, residents can see and experience the convenience this box provides for drug disposal." stated Village Clerk Emily Wirkus. "The Drug Drop Box is available year round to the public Monday through Friday, 8:00 am until 4:00 pm."
Fond du Lac County now has a total of nine Drug Drop Boxes. In addition to Rosendale, boxes are located at City of Fond du Lac Police Department, 126 North Main Street, City of Ripon Police Department, 100 E. Jackson Street, City of Waupun Police Department, 16 E. Main Street, North Fond du Lac Police Department, 16 Garfield Street, Village of Oakfield Police Department/Village Office, 130 Main Street and Campbellsport Police Department/Village Office 470 Grandview Avenue. Additional boxes are located at: St. Agnes Hospital, 430 E. Division Street, Fond du Lac and Waupun Memorial Hospital, Agnesian Healthcare, 620 West Brown Street, Waupun. The boxes are located just off the lobbies in the main hallways near the public elevators. Access to boxes is seven days a week from 5:00 am until 8:00 pm in Fond du Lac and 6:00 am until 8:00 pm Monday through Friday and 8:00 am until 8:00 pm on Saturday and Sunday in Waupun.
These boxes are available to all county residents to bring their old, expired or no longer needed prescription medications for disposal year round. Since opening the first Drug Drop Box in the State of Wisconsin at the City of Fond du Lac Police Department more than 12 million pills have been collected in Fond du Lac County.
"A drug drop off program like this helps dispose of drugs that are no longer needed in a safe way, preventing accidental overuse or abuse. This is a great convenience for the people of Fond du Lac County as they don't have to wait for a yearly collection to drop off their medications, " shared Village of Rosendale Police Chief Kevin Verdine.
Rosendale law enforcement officers are asking residents to zip through their medicine cabinets and zip off to the local Drug Drop Box with medications in their original bottles and empty the bottles into a zip-lock bag (provided at the box) and deposit the drugs for disposal.
