Take It to the Box

Take It To The Box of McLeod Countyslide3

WHAT is Take It To The Box?
The Take It To The Box program promotes the safe use, safe storage and safe disposal of unneeded prescription and over-the-counter medications. This includes both human and animal medications.
The McLeod County community and MEADA (Methamphetamine Education and Drug Awareness) are serious about preventing medication misuse/abuse and about the environmentally safe disposal of unneeded medications.
WHY is it important?
A growing concern is the abuse, by youth and others, of medications not prescribed for them. Safe disposal makes medicines less available.
Evidence is increasing of the damage to the environment due to unsafe disposal of medications. Proper disposal helps protect our soil and water.
WHEN are boxes available?
The Take It To The Box medication disposal boxes are available 7 days a week, 24 hours a day.
WHERE are the disposal boxes located?
McLeod County Sheriff’s Office Winsted Police Dept. Hutchinson Police Dept.
801 East 10th Street 201 1st St. North 10 Franklin St. S
Glencoe, MN Winsted, MN Hutchinson, MN
