Rock County residents will no longer need to wait for a special collection event to dispose of unused prescription drugs. Rock County Health Nurse Karen Cain says the Milton Police Department will start serving as a permanent drop-off site for unused prescription drugs.


Past collection events were very popular, prompting health officials to establish a permanent drop-off site.


Cain says proper disposal of unused prescriptions keeps drugs out of the groundwater and out of the hands of kids.


Cain says the Milton Police Department is making preparations to start collections August 1.


The health department is planning prescription drug collection events elsewhere in Rock County in the coming months.
