Local officials mull program for prescription drug disposal

Mitchell law enforcement officials say they will look into adding their own prescription drug disposal program, based on a pilot program taking place in western South Dakota.
The pilot program was implemented last week with Pennington County and Rapid City. Through the program, residents there can take excess or unneeded prescription drugs for disposal at the police and sheriff ’s departments’ joint Evidence Section, said Paige Wilbur, state Attorney General’s Office spokeswoman.
