A medication disposal program began Wednesday in Hubbard County to collect unused or expired pills.

Called "Take it to the Box," the program aims to get dangerous medications out of home medicine cabinets and possibly out of the wrong users' hands.


The collection point is a locked metal box at the Hubbard County Sheriff's Department at 301 Court Avenue in Park Rapids.
