Community Medication Take-Back Events

April 12, 2023 

Green Bay – HSHS St. Mary’s Hospital Medical Center and Bellin Health are partnering with the Green Bay Police Department for National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day, in conjunction with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), to offer Brown County residents safe disposal of expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs and over-the-counter medications.

Area residents will have the opportunity to safely dispose of these medications at two convenient Green Bay locations from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday, April 22:

  • HSHS St. Mary’s Hospital Medical Center, 1726 Shawano Ave. (near Emergency Department entrance)
  • Bellin Health, 725 S. Webster Ave. (across Webster Avenue from hospital main entrance)

Medication Take-Back:

  • Prescription and over-the-counter medications accepted
  • Cross out identifying information on the containers
  • No sharps

Those dropping off medications should remain in their vehicle and a volunteer will come to collect their items.

National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day aims to rid homes of unused medications that create a public health and safety concern because they can be stolen, abused, accidentally ingested or improperly disposed of.

Media:  Photo, B-roll and interview opportunities will be available Saturday, April 22 between 10 and 11 a.m. at the HSHS St. Mary’s location. Please contact Angela Deja, Communications and Public Relations Director, HSHS St. Mary’s Hospital Medical Center, at (715) 271-7707 or angela.deja@hshs.org if you plan to attend.
