2015 Clean Sweep Schedule:  Unwanted Prescription Drugs

The Clean Sweep collections listed below are open for citizens to drop off their unwanted prescription drugs. These are collections funded by the Wisconsin Clean Sweep Program. There may be other collections for these wastes that are not funded by the program and are not listed here. Check awarerx.org to find one of these sites near you. You could also check your county's website or call to see if the service is available.

Even if your county is listed here, we encourage you to check the website listed for details about location, materials accepted, fees and other important information.

We also have schedules for Clean Sweep-funded collections of agricultural hazardous wastes and very small quantities generated by businesses, and for household hazardous wastes
