National medicine take-back program to be hosted April 27

CARVER COUNTY, MN – Carver County Sheriff Jim Olson announced that his office is participating in the national take-back initiative program Saturday, April 27, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. This will be the fourth time that the sheriff’s office has participated in this event.
Carver County residents will be able to dispose of their medications at any of the five locations. There will be no questions asked. The boxes will be sealed, weighed, and transported for destruction by the sheriff’s office staff.
• Carver City Hall, 316 Broadway Ave., Carver
• Hamburg City Hall, 181 Broadway Ave., Hamburg
• Mayer City Hall, 413 Blue Jay Ave., Mayer
• Residents can also dispose of their medications at the two permanent sites located at Chanhassen City Hall and the Carver County Sheriff’s Office.
According to Sheriff Olson, “Prescription medicines are quickly becoming one of the most common drugs that are abused. The question of what to do with unwanted prescriptions and medicines has become a concern of our citizens and community, along with a crime prevention issue. In response to this, we sponsor two medicine take-back dates during the year. Carver County and the City of Chanhassen have also installed two permanent collection boxes.”
