Twenty-nine posts from the Michigan State Police will participate in the one-day 'Take-Back' effort by serving as drop-off points for citizens to discard expired, unused and unwanted medications for destruction.
No liquids, inhalers, patches, or syringes are to be accepted. The service is free and anonymous with no questions asked.
"Our 29 post across the state will serve as drop-off points allowing citizens a safe and confidential way to dispose of expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs," said Col. Kriste Kibbey Etue, director of the MSP. "The Michigan State Police is pleased to yet again partner with the DEA to prevent pill abuse and theft by helping residents rid their homes of potentially dangerous prescription drugs."
In Brighton, people can drop off their unwanted prescriptions at the Brighton Post located at 4337 Buno Rd. in Brighton or call 810-227-1051 for more information.
