October 20th is Crime Prevention Day in Manitowoc County, and there will be a drug disposal site set up at the County Expo Grounds. Everyone is encouraged to bring any unwanted drugs and medications so they can be disposed of free of charge. All pills must be placed in quart sized or smaller ziplock baggies, but crèmes, powders and liquids can remain in their original containers. Prescription bottles, and any medical aids, such as needles or inhalers will not be accepted. The collection will run from 10:00 AM-2:00 PM in the Merchants Building at the Expo Grounds.
