We missed on last year due to COVID but it's time again to start to look over the house for any unused, expired or unknown medications you may have around the house.  From their website - "The Muskegon Area Medication Disposal Program (MAMDP) is a collaborative of several community organizations that have come together so that residents of Muskegon County and surrounding communities would have a place to safely dispose of unused and expired medications and sharps.



The program has been going for 11 years now and has collected 21 TONS of meds that people could steal, kids could get a hold of  or could be sold on the street increasing break in's and more crime.  If you don't need it, get rid of it the right way.  The event is happening Saturday from 10a-2. at the Muskegon Township Fire Department located at 1117 S. Walker Road and there are NO QUESTIONS ASKED.  Well there are a few in advance, so we thought we'd give "the new guy" some screen time.  Normally you hear him on Sunday nights on B-Sidefs With Brian, but here he is in front of the camera with Sheriff Michael Poulin ad Carrie Uthe to tell you all about it.

It's safe.  No one will wonder or ask where anything came from and you'll be doing your part for the environment too by disposing of meds this way.  They are incinerated instead of put back into the water supply where ecological damage can happen.  Do your part to help bring down crime, dependency and the ease of access to drugs.  Yes, we all need them sometimes but when you're done, take care of what needs taking care of the proper way.  To learn more about the Muskegon Area Medicine Take Back Program, find their website linked below.
