Drug take-back day a success in Platteville

Posted:
PLATTEVILLE, Wis. (KWWL) -

The Platteville Police Department has officially installed a drug drop-off box in its lobby for the public to easily dispose unwanted medicines safely.

This is after the success the police department had in collecting more than 100 pounds of drugs during their drug take-back day.

In a press release Police Chief Doug McKinley states, "I'm very pleased to dispose of these medications in a safe manner so they're not entering our water table or sitting in a medicine cabinet where they could be stolen and abused."

The Platteville Police Station is located at 165 North Fourth Street.
