Drug Free Communities of Fond du Lac County reports that

during the Fall Drug Take Back collection on Saturday.
The 1,953 pounds of
drugs – added to the 2,171 pounds collected during the spring collection – puts

third straight year.

accommodate residents looking to dispose of the unwanted medications. The drop
box at the Fond du Lac Police Department was the first permanent drug drop box
in the state, and has collected over 24.5 million pills for disposal since
