Medication Take-back Event

Medication Take-Back Event:
Saturday Sept. 30th From 10:00am - 2:00pm


What's lurking in your medicine cabinet?

This is a free chance to get opioid pain medications and other unneeded medications out of the house.
They’re hiding in the backs of medicine cabinets throughout our community: drugs that no one needs, and that could pose a risk to children, teens, adults and the environment.

Residents of Washtenaw County can bring old, expired or just unneeded medicines to the Pioneer High School parking lot event and drive away knowing they will be properly and safely destroyed.

U-M Division of Pain Research, Anesthesiology and the Ann Arbor Police Department is hosting our 6th medication take-back event on Saturday, September 30 between 10-2PM in the Pioneer High School parking lot. The event aims to reduce the number of homes that have opioid painkillers on hand, as well as other medicines that shouldn’t be kept around because of the risk of abuse – and shouldn’t be dumped in the trash or down the toilet either.

We will accept prescription and over the counter pills, capsules and patches for humans and pets.
