Dispose of unused medications at Superior event

Oct. 24—SUPERIOR — The Douglas County Drug Prevention Coalition will hold a drug take-back event from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Oct. 28 at Superior Public Library, 1530 Tower Ave. Anyone can drop off unwanted, unused or expired medications for safe disposal.

The goal of these take-back events is to provide a safe, convenient and responsible means of disposal of prescription medications while also educating the general public about the potential for abuse of these medications, according to the Wisconsin Department of Justice.

Unused prescription medications in homes create a public health and safety concern because they can be accidentally ingested, stolen, misused and abused.
