National Prescription Drug Take Back Day is Saturday

The DEA’s National Prescription Drug Take Back Day is this Saturday, and local law enforcement will participate.

According to a release from the Paul Bunyan Drug Task Force, unused or unwanted prescription medication can be brought to the Beltrami County Law Enforcement Center Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Prescriptions can be left anonymously and securely. Needles (sharps) or liquids will not be accepted.

The DEA has collected nearly 11 million pounds of expired and unused medications in the nine years of this event.
