Wisconsin collected more than 30 tons of prescription drugs during a drug take back day last month, according to final numbers released by the Department of Justice last week.

Wisconsin collected a total of 60,472 pounds of drugs on Oct. 26. Across the state, 280 law enforcement agencies held drug take back events and collected medications from 476 drug disposal boxes.

The collected medications were transported to Indianapolis where they were incinerated.

Wisconsin had the second largest collection of any state in the nation, according to a report of preliminary numbers from the Drug Enforcement Agency.
