Benton County residents have a chance to get rid of old or unused medications tomorrow. The Benton County Sheriff's Department along with police departments in Sauk Rapids and Rice will be taking part in the DEA National Take Back Initiative.
Stearns County Sheriff John Sanner says they collected over 320 pounds of unused prescription drugs last Saturday. Their drug take back program was held at three sites. It was organized by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency.
Stearns County is going to install drop boxes for you to safely dispose of your old prescription drugs. Chief Deputy Sheriff Bruce Bechtold told county commissioners it's both a safety issue and an environmental one. Bechtold says they are working with the Environmental Services Department to run the program. He says the goal is to get the drugs out the home and safely dispose of them without the drugs getting into the groundwater.
