Wisconsin had the largest drug take back collection in the country this year during a national daylong event in late October, Attorney General Josh Kaul said Monday.
The state collected 89,982 pounds of unused and unwanted medications on Oct. 24.
Kaul said in a statement that the “efforts help with the fight against substance-use disorder by ensuring that those unused medications won’t be diverted.”
Across the state, 230 law enforcement agencies hosted events and collected drugs from 485 permanent drug disposal boxes.The drugs will head to Indianapolis where they’ll be incinerated.
