Sheriff says Drug Take Back Day is Success
The local Prescription Drug Take Back Day is deemed a success at keeping hundreds of bottles of unused medication from falling into the wrong hands. Marinette County Sheriff Jerry Sauve says 20 boxes of drugs were collected during the April 28th event. In addition to the permanent sites around the county, drop boxes were also located at several local pharmacies and medical centers. Sauve says his department coordinates with the Wisconsin Department of Justice to dispose of the medication.
