COLD SPRING - The Cold Spring Police Department is looking to get a prescription drug medication drop box.

Police Chief Chris Boucher says it would be a convenient option for Cold Spring residents, since St. Cloud and Paynesville are currently the closest drop-off box locations.

The drop box would be available for anyone in the city to use if they had excess or unused prescription drugs.

The Police Department would dispose of drugs properly after a drop-off. The boxes help reduce drug pollutants from entering landfills, and contaminating water supplies.
