Kenosha County Medical Disposal Program
UW-Parkside is now one of six collection sites for the proper disposal of medications in Kenosha County. This initiative is sponsored by the Kenosha County Health Department to promote responsible disposal of medications. This program aims to stop the flushing of old medications, reduce the risk of illegal use, prevent unnecessary poisonings and overdoses, and help protect the water quality of Lake Michigan.
