Spectrum Health Zeeland Community Hospital

Proper disposal of medications, sharps, and vapes is not only good for the environment but it provides a safe method to remove these items from your home. Community Mental Health of Ottawa County and Spectrum Health Zeeland Community Hospital are partnering with Michigan OPEN and the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Department to host a medication take back event on Saturday, April 30th from 10am-2pm.
This will be a drive thru event to ensure the safety of everyone participating. Please bring any unused or expired medications, sharps, or vapes to be safely disposed of. We will be offering medication lock boxes as well as Narcan training/distribution for those who are interested.
