If you have unused or expired medications in your home, this is your opportunity to safely dispose of them. Prescription drugs are only safe when they are used by the person they were prescribed to.

Keeping these drugs in your home can lead to deadly consequences or addiction. Twice a year the South Dakota Department of Social Services along with the Drug Enforcement Administration hosts "Prescription Take Back Day". The next one is this Saturday, April 27.

This day provides the opportunity to safely dispose of unwanted, unneeded, or unused and expired medications without question in secure medication drop boxes at participating locations.

Here in Sioux Falls, there are multiple locations where you can safely dispose of medications including:

  • All of the Hy-Vee pharmacies
  • All of the Lewis Drug pharmacies
  • Avera 69th Street Pharmacy
  • Avera 7th Avenue Pharmacy
  • Avera McKennan Campus Pharmacy
  • Avera Specialty Pharmacy
  • Sanford Hematology Oncology Clinic Pharmacy
  • True Care Family Pharmacy - 1120 E.  10th Street
  • Sioux Falls Police Department- 320 W. 4th Street

You can also order a free Dispose RX packet that chemically neutralizes prescription medications when mixed with water. These work with pills, tablets, capsules, liquids, and powders.

The 10 Most Redneck Towns in South Dakota

Are you a 'Redneck?' I guess to some people, all of us in South Dakota are rednecks.

If we use the Jeff Foxworthy Scale of Redneckeness, I have, in fact, been too drunk to fish. So by definition, I am a redneck. And so are many people I know.

Not that being from the country is a bad thing, and it can be fun to poke fun at ourselves.

With that in mind, we found that the folks at RoadSnacks put together a list that claims 'These Are The 10 Most Redneck Cities In South Dakota.'
What is a Redneck?

The dictionary says that a redneck is someone "...who lives in a small town or in the country, especially in the southern U.S., who typically has a working-class job, and who is seen by others as being uneducated and having opinions and attitudes that are offensive."

Well, a few things. First, South Dakota isn't THAT kind of 'south.' We're to the south of North Dakota, but to the north of 'The South.'

Plus that definition sounds awful mean and serious. I thought we were having fun here.

RoadSnacks leaned into the funny, Jeff Foxworthy-based version of a redneck. Then they rounded up select data on places in SD to determine their rankings. RoadSnacks Redneck Criteria:

  • Small towns
  • Least amount of high school graduates
  • Number of bars per city
  • Number of mobile home parks per capita
  • Number of tobacco stores per city
  • Number of places to get fishing gear
  • Number of guns and ammo stores per city
  • Walmarts, Bass Pro Shops, and dollar stores nearby
