Drop Off Unwanted Medications at Kittson County’s Drug Take Back Day

The Kittson County Sheriff’s Department, Kittson County Environmental Services, and Kittson County Public Health will host a semiannual Drug Take Back Day on Saturday, April 28 the for all members of the community.  Held in recognition of National Public Health Week, the event will take place from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Kittson County Sheriff’s Office, located in the lower level of the County Courthouse, 410 South 5th Street, Hallock, MN.  Drug Take Back days offer a safe and convenient method of disposing of unused or expired prescription and over-the- county medications.  They also raise awareness about the importance of preventing accidental drug poisoning, drug theft, addiction and the contamination of waterways that can occur when medications are flushed down the toilet.  All medications collected during the event are considered anonymous and will be incinerated.  Prescription drugs, including controlled substances, over-the- counter medications, will be accepted at the Drug Take Back. No device or object used to puncture or lacerate the skin will be accepted. People dropping off drugs are asked to bring them in a bag.
