Medication take-back programs are aimed at reducing the quantity of unused pharmaceuticals entering the environment and water supply, and reducing the amount of drugs available for diversion, theft, or accidental poisoning. A medication disposal box is available at the Columbus Police Department 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Thank you to the generous donors of the 2015 PRH Walk in the Park who made the purchase of the disposal box possible.

Sharps, needles, injectors or sprays will not be accepted in the medication disposal box. Prairie Ridge Health offers a separate sharps collection program to the community. For more information about proper medication disposal or the PRH sharps collection program, contact Prairie Ridge Health at 920-623-1280 or
