Dispose of Unwanted Medications Safely –
Medication Collection Hours at the Silver Lake Village Hall - Mon-Fri (8AM-5PM) excluding holidays
The Kenosha County Division of Health has recently implemented a program for safe disposal of unwanted or expired prescription and over-the-counter medications. The program was implemented to ensure proper disposal of medications that should not be flushed or thrown in the garbage, as well as to help reduce the risk of illegal use of these drugs. There are four drop boxes available in the area where you can dispose of almost any medications. For more information about specific disposal instructions and box locations, visit the Kenosha County Division of Health website. Please take advantage of this resource so as to ensure the well-being of our community and environment.

If you are moving to another residence, please remember that the garbage and recycling carts stay with the house — they are assigned to the addresses. Please do not take them with you. They are the property of Advanced Disposal, our garbage/recycling hauler. Thank you.
About the Village of Silver Lake
Silver Lake most likely received it’s name from the Native Americans in the area because they considered the lake a shimmering pool of water. Later after the railroad arrived in 1886, the community became a summer spot for tourists and had a thriving ice business in the winter months. With electricity the ice business was over but recreation remained. Since it’s beginning, Silver Lake has been a resort recreation spot, a thriving and growing community, home to inventors, a great place to live and much more.
