Dispose unused medications, sharps, safely and securely on Sept. 30

Share this:

If you’ve got unused medications and sharps that you would like to dispose of safely and securely, be sure to be at the Howell Walgreens between noon and 4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 30. The Big Red Barrel, the Livingston County Drain Commissioner, and Walgreens are teaming up to collect unused medications, sharps and needles.

The Drain Commissioner’s office will be onsite to collect sharps ad needs for this one time only.

There is no cost to drop off items, and no questions will be asked.

In addition to collecting your unused meds and sharps for disposal, there will be flu shots available from Walgreens, prescription drug abuse information (including information about Narcan), and a pharmacist on site to answer any questions you might have.

Sharps need to be in a heavy plastic container, like a red “sharp” box or empty laundry detergent jug sealed with tape. Sharp collection is open to residents only, not business or medical facilities.

Liquid medications are accepted only in a zip-lock plastic bag with enough paper towels inside to absorb all the liquid. Each liquid medication must be in its own bag.

The Howell Walgreens is located at 2321 E. Grand River Ave., at the corner of Grand River Avenue and Golf Club Road.
