Shredding and prescription take-back event set for Saturday, Oct. 26
As part of national Drug Take Back Day, the village of Thiensville and Port Washington State Bank will conduct an Oktoberfest-themed event from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 26, at PWSB's Thiensville branch, 197 S. Main St.
Das Klean Out will provide an opportunity for area residents to safely dispose of expired or unneeded prescription drugs. A truck also will be on-site to provide an opportunity for residents to shred sensitive documents.
The event also will offer free food, live polka music and crafting activities for children. The Lakeshore Chinooks and team mascot Gill are providing volunteer support. The Thiensville Business Association also is a key supporter of the event and will be collecting donations for the planned splash pad in Thiensville's Village Park.
"In April, we collected almost 70 pounds of prescription drugs," said Thiensville Police Chief Curt Kleppin. "Beyond that, it's a fun way to get into the fall spirit."
