The Sturgis Elks has been recognized for its $900 donation to help the Sturgis Police Department set up a secured deposit box for prescription drugs and other medications.
The box is set up in the lobby at the police station and is available for drop off of expired or the balance of unused medication. The box is also suitable for deposit of pet medicine, vitamins and prescription patches.
Police said the box is not suitable for deposit of inhalers, needles, thermometers, liquids or aerosol cans.
Contents of the box are gathered and incinerated after the collection receptacle reaches capacity.
