Moorhead Police Collect 125 lbs. of Prescription Drugs

We collected 9 boxes of medications totaling about 125 lbs. Since April 2010, the Moorhead Police has collected approximately 4,489 lb of medications from the public.

MOORHEAD, MN — This past Saturday, the Moorhead Police partnered with the DEA and Walgreens for another national prescription medication take-back event.

We collected 9 boxes of medications totaling about 125 lbs. Since April 2010, the Moorhead Police has collected approximately 4,489 lb of medications from the public.

The Moorhead Police Department regularly participates in the national prescription medication take-back events, but we also have a drug drop-off safe in the lobby of the law enforcement center that is open and available to the public 24/7 to drop off unused prescription medications.

Disposing of unused/expired medications helps in combating accidental poisoning, misuse, overdose and pollution of our waterways.
