Per a press release by the Brown County Sheriff’s office, the Sleepy Eye Drug Take Back box located at the Sleepy Eye Police Department is no longer available. All future drop offs will need to be made at the Law Enforcement Center Building located at 15 S Washington St in New Ulm.
The Brown County Sheriff’s Office has taken over the “Drug Take Back” program per Minnesota State Statute (SS 151.01, subd. 17)
The drop off site is now located at the Brown County Sheriff’s Office. The site at the Brown County Sheriff’s Office is located in the front lower lobby of the Law Enforcement Center. This site is under video surveillance at all times.
I know this may be an inconvenience for you. I will look at securing another site or two down the road. In the mean time I ask that each of you encourage your local pharmacy to participate in the “Drug Take Back Program” This would make it convenient for everyone.
