Prescription & Over the Counter Medication Disposal Drop Box

 Take It To The Box Safe Prescription Medication Disposal

What is it?

PrescriptionDropBox

  • The Lyon County Sheriff's Office in conjunction with the Marshall Police Department and the Marshall Area Crime Fund are serious about preventing medication misuse/abuse and providing environmentally safe disposal of unwanted medications.
  • The Take It To The Box program promotes the safe disposal of unneeded and/or expired prescription and over the counter medications. This includes both human and animal medications along with illegal drugs. (Sharps/Needles or infectious waste cannot be accepted)
  • A growing concern in our communities is the abuse, by youth and others, of medications not prescribed to them. Safe disposal makes medications less available. Proper disposal of medication helps protect our soil and water. Unsafe disposal of medications can contribute to environmental damage.
  • This program remains ongoing, in which a permanent prescription drop box has been securely installed in the lobby of the Lyon County Law Enforcement Center for 24/7 drop off availability.
  • There is no charge to individuals dropping off medications.

How do I use this program?

  1. Keep the medication in its original container.
  2. Leave the name of the drug and other content information clearly visible. Remove the individuals name and other identifying information by scratching the person's name out or by covering the name with a permanent marker. You may also cut off the part of the label with the individual's name.
  3. Take the unneeded prescriptions and over-the-counter medications to the: Prescription/OTC Drop Box in the main lobby of the Lyon County Law Enforcement Center located at 611 West Main Street Marshall, MN 56258.
  4. Drop the unneeded and/or expired medications into the drop box. No questions asked.
  • DO NOT flush medications down the toilet.
  • Ask an officer if you need assistance by calling (507) 537-7000.

I know someone who has a large amount of unneeded medication but is unable to bring it in for disposal. Can I drop off someone else’s medication?

Yes. If needed, friends or family members may bring medication to The Box for someone else. Please call if you have a question about this.

What happens to the medications dropped into The Box?

The Box will be emptied as needed. Contents are stored in secured locations. Periodically, law enforcement and a chemist from a qualified disposal company will sort the medication. Medicines will then be taken to a licensed site to be incinerated.

How do I obtain additional Information?

  • Call (507) 537-7000 and ask to speak with;
  • Marshall Police Sergeant, or
  • Lyon County Sheriff's Office Investigator Steven Louwagie.

Wildlife Watching

Garvin County Park is the heart of the Cottonwood River in Lyon County. Almost 800 acres of riparian woodland reside along the growing Cottonwood River - nestled into the remnant prairie landscape. This rich mix of topography offer deep valleys for dense, woodland-loving species like Wild Turkey, Eastern Screech-Owl, Black-belled Cuckoo, and Eastern Towhee.

Garvin Park is a must stop during spring migration for a variety of species of warblers, tanagers, orioles, and buntings. Whip-poor-wills sing when springtime is nigh and Least Flycatchers are plentiful enough to make your ears ring. An autumn fallout of raptors in can turn up Peregrine Falcon, Osprey, Broad-winged, Sharp-shinned and Cooper's Hawks, and both Red-tailed and Swainson's Hawks have nested in or near the park. Winter is a good time to search for the growing Wild Turkey population, and both Long-eared and Screech Owls find refuge in the steep banks when the wind is bitter from the northwest. Bald Eagle can be seen in early winter looking for a feast. Northern Cardinal are growing in population as well. In spring and Fall, dense underbrush makes for suitable cover for the migrating sparrows. Some rare summer nesting species include Ruby-throated Hummingbird, and American Redstart; somewhat removed from their typical Minnesota range. 

Garvin Park is listed at a "hotspot" on eBird: eBird Hotspot - Garvin County Park

 

Twin Lakes Park in Southwest Lyon County doe not have much l;and to offer but its namesake lakes offer a variety to water-loving birds. East Twin Lake is typical of Southwestern Minnesota lakes - very trophic with a strong food source for pelicans, and herons. West Twin is disconnected from East, and has pristine water clarity; great for diving ducks and loons, and grebes during migration. A 20 acre wetland complex between the two lakes privides foraging for migrating geese and nesting for dabbling ducks, rails, and herons.

Camden Regional Trail

 

kids-crt.jpg The Camden Regional Trail is a paved, multi-purpose recreational trail extending from Southwest Minnesota State University (SMSU) through the City of Marshall, and connecting area residents to Camden State Park. About 4 miles of paved trail connect adjacent campuses of Marshall High School and SMSU to a network of bike lanes in the City of Marshall. At the West end of Marshall, the paved trail covers 10 miles of gently rolling hills between Wayside Park (along MN HWY 23) to Camden State Park.

The community is fortunate that years of planning has come to fruition. Supported by the Minnesota Parks and Trails Legacy Grant Program (administered through the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources) this trail system is of regional importance by providing community members from throughout the region to utilize the trail for walking biking, running, hiking, and inline skating. With Camden State Park as a destination location, and several enjoyable stops along the way, the Camden Regional Trail invites your to stay in shape, connect to the outdoors, and feed your soul.
