The “Take it to the Box” prescription drug collection program collected over 1,352 pounds of unwanted prescription drugs from across Otter Tail County in 2019.

 Since the start of the collection program in 2012, over 6,950 pounds of prescription drugs have been collected and properly disposed of just throughout Otter Tail County. 

One of the drop locations is at Pelcian Rapids City Hall.

If you would like to drop off any unwanted or outdated pharmaceutical prescriptions, over-the counter medicines including liquids, or veterinarian medications, you can drop them off anonymously during normal business hours at any of these locations:

1. Sheriff’s Office, Fergus Falls Court House        

2. Pelican Rapids City Hall            

3. Perham Police Department                    

4. Parkers Prairie City Hall            

5. Otter Tail County’s building in New York Mills     

6. Sheriff’s Operation Center          

7. Battle Lake Police Department          

8. Henning Police Department          

This program is a partnership through the Otter Tail County Sheriff’s Office, Otter Tail County Public Health, Otter Tail County Solid Waste, and local area Police Departments. This is a free service offered to the public so you can dispose of these unwanted drugs properly, keeping them out of the water supply, and off our streets. 

NO SYRINGES, NEEDLES or SHARPS accepted at these locations. 

Any questions about this program please contact Otter Tail County Detective Dion Bredman at 218-367-6311.
