What do you do with your old prescription (Rx) drugs? Where do you take them? Right now, you can take and place unused Rx drugs in the drop box located at the Winona Law Enforcement Center (Open M-F 7:30am-4:30pm, and you can get buzzed-in after hours). We would like to make additional drop boxes available at locations such as pharmacies, but current Minnesota statutes prohibits this.
Thankfully, a group of Winona State University students partnered with us over the last year to help raise awareness of Rx drug misuse, and the need for safe disposal methods. They talked with local pharmacies and law enforcement, and prepared compelling information to share with Senator Jeremy Miller at the Minnesota State Capitol in late March. If you would like to help advocate for state policy change, contact your representatives or talk with our Program Coordinator.
