    Prescription/Over-the-Counter Medicine Collection Program

    The Waukesha County Sheriff’s Department in partnership with CVS Pharmacy recognizes that the abuse of prescriptions and over-the-counter medications is a concern for the residents of Waukesha County.

    The proper, safe disposal of these medications is imperative to keeping our communities and environment safe. For your convenience in disposing of unwanted prescriptions and over-the-counter medicine, there are CVS collections drop boxes at the Waukesha County Sheriff Department, Pewaukee City Hall and Village of Sussex Public Safety Building.
