The Cheyenne County Sheriff's Office has obtained a MEdReturn drug collection unit. Citizens looking to dispose of excess and expired prescription and over-the-counter- medications can now visit the safe and secure permanent drop off location in the south hall of the courthouse. Properly disposing of excess drugs is everyone's responsibility as a matter of public safety. More than 70 percent of the young people abusing prescription pain releivers get them through friends and family, a statistic that includes raiding the family medicine cabinet. Now Cheyenne County citizens won't have to wait for a specific take-back day to clean out their medicine cabinets. Keep prescription medication away from our children and out of our water supply.
