On April 30th, 2016, Healthy Sheboygan County 2020 held the first of two bi-annual Drug Drop Off events at five locations in Sheboygan County. The events occurred in Sheboygan, Random Lake, Plymouth, Oostburg and Howards Grove. Law enforcement along with members of Healthy Sheboygan County 2020 manned the five sites. Sheboygan County residents disposed of approximately 452 pounds of prescription narcotics.
“The support of the community in disposing of unneeded and expired prescription narcotics is an important component of combating prescription pill abuse”, Capt. Veeser.
“Each event held results in larger amounts of prescription narcotics being properly disposed of and demonstrates that residents want to do their part concerning this national mental health issue”, Capt. Veeser.
Healthy Sheboygan County 2020 plans on holding the second Drug Drop Off event in the Fall of 2016. Support from the Acuity donation assists in holding the event at various locations.
