Residents may safely dispose of prescription or over-the-counter medicines and personal care products for free.
We request that residents keep the medicines in the original container for easy identification of the medicine but erase or black out all personal information from the prescription bottles. We will accept non-prescription over-the-counter medications (OTC), prescription medications including controlled substances, and even pet medications. You can bring in pills, liquids, ointments, and lotions.
The event is being hosted by the Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians Tribal Police, in cooperation with McLaren Northern Michigan, the Health Department of Northwest Michigan, Emmet County Recycling, and Tip of the Mitt Watershed Council.
