Sheriff's Office to take part in drug take back event

(KNZA)--The Brown County Sheriffs office will be participating in the National Drug Take Back event Saturday, April 27th.

The event will take place at the sheriffs office in Hiawatha from 10-2.

Brown County Sheriff John Merchant says the Sheriff's Office has been part of the national event for many years. He said hundreds of pounds of unwanted, unused or expired medications have been collected at the Sheriff's office and then turned over to the DEA for disposal.

Merchant said they also collect medications year round, 24 hours a day.

He said the event provides residents an effective way to dispose of medication they no longer need or use.

Injectables and needles are not accepted.
