Clear Your Cabinets – Huron County Prescription Drug Drop-Off Event

This Saturday, the Huron County Sheriff’s Office in Bad Axe, Michigan, is opening its doors for a special cause. The office is hosting a prescription drug take-back event in partnership with the DEA. The initiative aims to reduce the surplus of prescription drugs that often clutter our medicine cabinets.

A Special Day for a Special Cause

  • Date: October 28th
  • Time: 10:00 to 14:00
  • Location: Main entrance off of South Street

The event is part of a broader effort to combat the misuse of prescription drugs. Residents can drop off unwanted pills and patches, but items like syringes and inhalers won’t be accepted.

What Can You Bring?

  1. Pills
  2. Patches
  3. Vape pens (with removable batteries)

Remember, devices with non-removable batteries are a no-go.

A Long-Standing Commitment

Since January 3, 2011, the Sheriff’s Office has collected unwanted prescription drugs during regular business hours. Approximately 2250 people have contributed nearly 1860 lbs of unwanted medications to date. If you can’t make it this Saturday, don’t worry. The service remains available during regular business hours. For more information, residents can call the office at 989-269-6500.

Final Thoughts on Huron County Prescription Drug Drop-Off

The Huron County Sheriff’s Office is taking a proactive approach to tackle the issue of surplus prescription drugs. This Saturday’s event is an excellent opportunity for residents to declutter their homes and contribute to a safer community.
