Muskegon Area Medication Disposal Program
About Us...

This year:
Muskegon Area Medication Disposal Program (MAMDP) is pleased to share with you the results of the medication take back event held on Saturday, September 26, 2015 at the City of Muskegon Fire Department in Muskegon, MI.  The program collected of over 1,799 pounds of medication and 1,148 pounds of sharps from more than 380 residents.

To date:

We are celebrating the start of our 5th year with collection totals of over 10 tons of medications that have been safely destroyed since 2010. The program is making an impact and a change in behavior for our area residents on how they dispose of their medications and sharps. We have grown to be one of the largest take back events for the State of Michigan according to past Michigan DEA reports.
