Prescription drug take-back Saturday in Brookings, nationwide

South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley encourages people with unneeded prescription medication to safely dispose of it during tomorrow’s National Drug Take Back Day.

It’s an opportunity for people to safely dispose of their unwanted, unneeded, or unused medication.

Jackley says unneeded or unused medication can be deadly if it is used by the wrong person or was not prescribed for you.

National Drug Take Back Day is sponsored by the United States Drug Enforcement Administration. The service is free and anonymous.

In Brookings, you can dispose of unwanted prescriptions at the Brookings County Sheriff’s Office, Hy-Vee and Lewis Drug. In addition, The Brookings Police Department will collect prescriptions at Wal-Mart from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm.
