National Prescription Drug Take Back Day
Make sure to include your medicine cabinet on your spring cleaning list. This Saturday, several local law enforcement and health agencies are taking part in National Drug Take Back Day and residents are encouraged to dispose of unused or expired prescription or over-the-counter medications at drop-off locations throughout Marinette and Menominee Counties.
National Drug Take Back Day isn’t the only time people can safely dispose of medication. Drop-boxes at both the Marinette County Sheriff’s Office and Menominee County Jail are available year-round. Sauve says his department coordinates with the Wisconsin Department of Justice to dispose of the drugs.
Items that cannot be accepted include medical equipment and supplies or any sharps. Drug drop-boxes will be available Saturday from 9:00 AM until noon at the BAMC Mobility Center, Marinette County Sheriff’s Office, Menominee Police Department, BAMC Stephenson Pharmacy, Crivitz Pharmacy, Amberg Community Center, and Niagara Police Department.
