A total of 35 pounds of pills were collected during a Prescription Drug Drop Off event held this month at the Isabella County Commission on Aging in partnership with Ten16 Recovery Network and the Mt. Pleasant Police Department.
Prescription Drug Drop Off events are held in the community several times throughout the year and allow residents to drop off unwanted or outdated prescription medication to ensure it is disposed of in a safe manner. It also keeps the drugs out of the hands of people who would misuse them, as well as prevents them from entering landfills and groundwater.
The Mt. Pleasant Police Department thanks the partners for this event and the public for helping keep the community safe and healthy.
Community members may also safely discard prescription medication at the
Mt. Pleasant Police Department at any time.
