Medication Takeback Day

Saturday, 4/28/18

494 Butternut Dr.

Holland, MI 49424

Why have a medication takeback day?
As you may know, we are facing an Opiate Epidemic in Ottawa County and throughout the United States. Americans use 80% of the world’s supply of opiates (pain medication). If not carefully managed, opiates can be dangerous as they are easily misused and can cause accidental overdose and death. As a community, we can help by removing unused medications from our homes and safely disposing of them. Feel free to bring in any unused medications to dispose of, we are specifically focused on collecting: pain medications (hydrocodone, Norco, Vicodin, Oxycodone, Coxycontin, Percocet, Tramadol or Fentanyl), Sedatives (Xanax, ambien, valium, and klonopin), Antidepressants, ADHD Medications, Muscle Relaxants, and Veterinarian Medications.

Why should I participate?
By disposing of unused medications it will prevent misuse in our community, accidental medication poisoning, and clears out space in your cabinet! If you are unable to attend our medication takeback event on April 28th, you can find our county’s permanent medication disposal sites here.

If you’ve been impacted by opiates – please contact us!
