HSHS St. Joseph’s Hospital is partnering with the Chippewa Falls Police Department for National Prescription Drug Take Back Day on Oct. 29. The drive-thru event provides a safe, convenient and responsible disposal opportunity for unwanted or expired medications.
HSHS St. Joseph’s Hospital and Police Department host Prescription Drug Take Back
Nearly 60,000 pounds of unused or expired medication was collected in Wisconsin at Prescription Drug Take Back Day in April 2022 – the largest amount collected in the country, according to the Wisconsin Department of Justice.
HSHS St. Joseph’s Hospital is encouraging community members to help boost that number even more during the next event on Oct. 29 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the hospital’s main entrance.
