The College hosted its first ever Safe Medication Disposal Event near Ingalls Mall in Ann Arbor on Thursday. We are pleased at the resounding success of this event! An estimated 160 pounds of medications were collected during the 4-hour event, 25% of which were controlled substances. This has a huge impact on keeping our water clean and our communities safe from drug diversion.

“It was wonderful to be invited to work with the University on this. The students did a great job.  I’m very pleased with the success of the event,” states Sergeant Gary Hicks, U-M Police Department Community Outreach Supervisor.

A special thanks goes out to the U-M College of Pharmacy students, Sergeant Gary Hicks, Debra Cook from Village Apothecary, and Chris Angel from Great Lakes Clean Water Alliance "Yellow Jug" Program for making this event possible.
