Medicine Collection Program

The City of South Milwaukee recognizes that the abuse of pharmaceuticals is a serious health and social problem. The City of South Milwaukee also recognizes that improper disposal of medications is a threat to our environment. As a community, we need to keep prescription drugs out of the hands of our children and water systems of the state.

The City of South Milwaukee operates a Medicine Collection Program for South Milwaukee residents to protect our children and our environment. You can drop off medication in the police department lobby drop box.
