FREE Radon Testing Kits

Radon is a gas that you cannot smell, taste, or see. People can be exposed to radon primarily from breathing radon in air that comes through cracks and gaps in buildings and homes.  Because radon comes naturally from the earth, people are always exposed to it.

We have FREE Radon Test Kits for Cudahy Residents.  Please stop in to pick up one up for your home during normal business hours, 8:00-4:30PM Monday-Friday.

Unused Prescription Medication Disposal

Prescription medications can be harmful to the environment, and even more importantly, can be in the reach of children.  The City of Cudahy has a medication disposal program and will dispose of your unused prescription medications at no charge.  Please bring your unused medications to the Cudahy Police Department Lobby (Open 24 hours/day). They can be dropped off in the black mailbox outside of the police department.
