Michigan DEQ Launches New Drug Disposal Web Page

Michigan DEQ Launches New Drug Disposal Web Page

Training: 49 CFR 172, Subpart H and 40 CFR 265.16

Training for RCRA Personnel and HazMat Employees in Michigan

On April 29th, 2016 the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) launched its new Drug Disposal Web Page for businesses and citizens of Michigan.  It includes:

  • Locations and information on drug “takeback” activities throughout the state.
  • Provides information for the healthcare industry on proper drug disposal.
  •  Drug disposal options for both households and non-households, i.e. commercial or industry.
  • Universal Waste Guidance in Michigan.  Why?  Because Michigan is one of only two states – what up Florida? – that allows disposal of pharmaceuticals as a universal waste.  View my presentation on this topic:  The Identification and Management of Universal Waste in Michigan.
Unwanted drugs should not be flushed down the drain!
