Stop Addiction - Dispose of unused medication appropriately

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 CCH 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. Columbus Community Hospital offers a separate sharps collection program to the community. For more information about proper medication disposal or the CCH sharps collection program, contact Columbus Community Hospital at 920-623-1280 or
