Prescription Drop Off

The Edgar Police Department is participating in a county wide program to provide citizens a place to drop off old prescriptions and medications, including controlled narcotic drugs so they can be properly disposed of and do not wind up in the local landfills or municipal water supplies. Edgar PD, Everest Metro PD, Wausau PD, Marathon City PD, Colby-Abbotsford PD and Rothschild PD have volunteered to host drop boxes at each department.
