Prescription Drug Drop-Off

Village of Bellevue » Departments » Public Safety » Police Services » Community Events » Prescription Drug Drop-Off

As part of a comprehensive plan to fight drug abuse in Brown County, the Sheriff's Office is collecting unwanted residential household medications. The purpose of the collections is to prevent theft, avoid poisoning of children and pets, and to stop pollution of our local waterways. Wisconsin Public Service has joined this effort by agreeing to properly destroy these medications.

Together, we can make a difference in the fight against drug abuse.

Brown County residents are encouraged to bring their unwanted medications to the front desk of the Brown County Sheriff's Office, located at:

2684 Development Drive, in the Village of Bellevue WI.
