Do you have some old medication that you want to get rid of? Unwanted meds are being collected at the state capitol.
Last year, 579 pounds of unwanted medications were collected worth an estimated 1 million dollars. This will be the fourth year for the event, held by the Michigan Pharmacists Association.
The goal of the event is to safely dispose of medication that is expired or no longer needed. they say events like these prevent medications from getting into the wrong hands. Today, members of the MPA will be collecting prescription and over the counter medications, controlled substances including narcotics, eye drops, inhalers, even pet medications and vitamins. They won't take needles or syringes, or medications from a hospital.
You can drop it all off Tuesday between 10 AM and 1 PM at the Capitol. There will be a tent on the lawn. If you can't attend the event, they're also offering curbside drop off.
