Drug drop box now available at North Fond du Lac P.D.

FOND DU LAC (WITI) -- North Fond du Lac police have partnered with Drug Free Communities of Fond du Lac County to offer a new pharmaceutical collection and and disposal program.

Police Chief Darren Pautsch says the program was started to provide a safe and environmentally friendly means of getting rid of unused prescription drugs in North Fond du Lac.

The box is located at the North Fond du Lac Police Department on Garfield Street. The Drug Drop Box will be accessible to residents during normal business hours Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

They are asking individuals to remove any pills or capsules from their original containers and secure them in Ziplock-style bags before putting them in the box.
