Agnesian HealthCare Drug Drop Boxes Collect Over 4,000 Pounds

Agnesian HealthCare has been offering an easy way for area
residents to properly dispose of expired or unneeded medications for over two
years now. The sites at St. Agnes
Hospital, Waupun
Memorial Hospital,
and Ripon Medical Center
have now collected more than 4,000 pounds of unused medications. 

The drop boxes
give people a place to dispose of medications that is both environmentally
responsible and safe from potential abuse. The drug drop locations complement
eight other existing sites supported by Drug Free Communities of Fond du Lac
County – including one at the Fond du Lac Police Department. 

All drug drop
locations are open during hospital main entrance hours.
