The City of Marquette now has a safe place to properly dispose of your prescription drugs.
The Marquette Police Department will now have a prescription drug drop–off box where you can drop of old meds and pills no questions asked.
The program initiated in Illinois and has come to the U.P. with help of Westwood and Marquette Senior High School Students.
Not only will this program keep pills off the streets but another plus is that it will keep prescription meds from being flushed down the toilet, and added into water sources.
There is also a drop-off box located in the City of Ishpeming Police Department as well.
