Protect our water supply. Never dispose of medicine or unwanted, out-dated prescriptions in drains or toilets!!
The Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE) makes it simple to find household medication collection and disposal options with the interactive Household Drug Take Back Map, which is phone friendly, and its new companion “how to” video. EGLE’s Drug Takeback Map helps residents find convenient collection locations across the state. Instead of flushing or tossing medications in the trash, takeback programs provide a safe disposal option that eliminates the potential risk of unintentional poisoning of children or pets, and negative impact to the environment.
The Macomb County Health Department currently is not open to walk-in services. Please visit their website to locate partnering pharmacies to properly dispose of your unwanted medications.
DisposeMyMeds.org, is an online resource to help you to find medication disposal programs at the local independent community pharmacy near you.
