Operation Medicine Cabinet

The City of Keego Harbor is participating in Operation Medicine Cabinet sponsored by Home Instead Senior Care and the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office. Operation Medicine Cabinet allows you and other members of the community to clear out your medicine cabinets and dispose of outdated or unused prescription drugs in an environmentally safe manner. Recent studies in Michigan and other states have revealed that many of the substances that have been dumped down the toilet or thrown in to our landfills are now showing up in our watersheds, streams and lakes. Removing and disposing of these drugs properly is also important, it helps keep prescription drugs out of the hands of unauthorized users, as well as seniors, who may have trouble keeping track of a large number of drugs they are prescribed.

The program provides citizens a convenient venue for properly disposing of expired and/or unused prescriptions at several different locations around Oakland County.
