Pharmaceutical Medication Drop Box

A Pharmaceutical Medication Drop Box is located by the Police Department in City Hall.  Residents can use the drop box to safely dispose of unused/unwanted medications. It is available during regular business hours, Monday - Friday between 8:00am and 4:30pm.

  • All unused/unwanted medications are accepted; but NO SHARPS
  • If medications are in a glass container, put them in a padded envelope provided at the drop box before depositing. 
  • You do not need to remove any identifying labels from the bottles. Privacy is of highest importance and the labels are never viewed.
  • For large quantities, please call (320) 259-3700 to arrange disposal.
  • This program is for household use, not commercial.  Businesses should contact their waste management vendor for medication disposal information.

The goal of the medication drop box program is to keep unused/unwanted medications out of our water supply as well as out of the hands of individuals who might abuse them.
