Muskegon Area Medication Disposal Program (MAMDP)

Expands Daily Medication Drop-off Options in Muskegon County

Muskegon County residents now have access to an expanded network of daily medication disposal options. The Muskegon Area Medication Disposal Program (MAMDP) has established partnerships with six local law enforcement agency locations to offer safe, convenient collection and environmentally responsible disposal of controlled medications.

The MAMDP is an all volunteer public/private partnership between Lakeshore Health Network, Muskegon County Health Project, Muskegon County Department of Public Works, our friends in local law enforcement and a community of local, independent pharmacies. In 2011, this program prevented over 2,500 lbs of unwanted medications from entering our wastewater and landfill, and disposed of over 200 lbs of sharps through quarterly events alone. This latest addition of con-trolled medication collection at law enforcement agencies adds to the existing daily non-controlled pharmacy collection program that has been in place for over a year. Both efforts allow MAMDP to provide a more convenient, reliable and responsible disposal program for Muskegon County residents. Procurement and promotion of the new secure drop boxes has made possible through the generous support of the Environmental Endowment Fund of the Community Founda-tion for Muskegon County.
