County Drop Off Sites Paying Off

Duluth, MN (KDAL) - The 'Take it to the Box' medication drop off sites are a proving to be a hit.  Area law enforcement agencies around Saint Louis County have collected more than 645 pounds of unused pharmaceuticals in the past ten months.  The county's Environmental Services Department set up the drop boxes earlier this year with the help of a Minnesota Pollution Control Agency grant.  There are also 'Take it to the Box' locations in Duluth, Hermantown and Proctor police facilities that are coordinated by the WLSSD.  Improper disposal of expired or unused medications can have adverse effects on fish and wildlife.
