The Rice County community is serious about preventing medication misuse or abuse and environmentally unsafe medication disposal practices. “Take It To The Box” promotes the safe use, storage, and disposal of medication.
Northfield and Faribault police departments provide disposal boxes that are available 24/7. These "drop off" boxes will accept over-the-counter medications, prescription drugs, and animal medications from community members.
In Northfield, bring unneeded medications to the medication disposal box located in the lobby of the Police Department, 1615 Riverview Drive, Northfield, MN.
Leave the medicine in its original container.
