Event Details

Roseau, M.N. – On August 6 from 12 to 4 p.m., Warroad, Roseau and Greenbush residents will have 

the chance to drop off unused and unwanted medications, prescription or over-the-counter, for safe 

disposal at a convenient drive-up, drop-off event in each community. Altru Clinic, LifeCare Medical 

Center, LifeCare Public Health, the Roseau County Sheriff’s Office, Roseau Police Department and 

Warroad Police Department have joined forces to rid our communities of excess medications. 

Drive-up, drop-off locations include: 

  • Warroad Law Enforcement Center 
  • Roseau City Center (North Parking Lot) 
  • Greenbush Fire Hall 

Medications can be left in their original containers. All items are incinerated including personal identifiers. 

Properly disposing of excess drugs is everyone’s responsibility as a matter of public safety. Medications 

left in homes can lead to theft, misuse, diversion, unintentional poisoning, abuse and overdose. Please 

find time to clean out your medicine cabinet and drop off controlled, non-controlled or over-the-counter 

medications during the Medication Take Back Day. If you are unable to attend the Medication Take Back 

Day find further information on safe disposal at
