Kentwood Police Department Takes Back Unwanted Prescription Drugs on April 25, 2015

On April 25, 2015, from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm, the Kentwood Police Department and the West Michigan Take Back Meds Program will give the public the opportunity to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs.

Bring your pills for disposal to the Kentwood Police Department, 4742 Walma Ave SE, Kentwood, MI 49512. The Department cannot accept liquids, needles or sharp objects, only pills or patches. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.

The West Michigan Take Back Meds Program is a joint effort between local pharmacies, law enforcement, wastewater treatment facilities and government agencies to provide residents with safe, convenient access to proper medicine disposal. Proper disposing of your unused medications will ensure that your medicines will not be stolen from the garbage, will not enter our environment, and eliminates the potential for abuse and overdoses at home.
