January 15, 2020 The Big Red Barrel Project is returning to Genoa Township Hall

According to the Michigan Department of Education, nearly 13 percent of Livingston County youths have abused prescription drugs and painkillers in the past 30 days, a rate higher than the national average.  The FDA has recently released a study on the harmful effects of medications that are flushed or dumped into the environment.  The Red Barrel project is designed to combat both these issues by collecting and disposing of unused medications in your bathroom cabinet.

Genoa Township is joining in the fight to save our kids and the environment.  The Big Red Barrel drug take back program will be available at the Township Hall from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m on the following date:

  • Saturday January 25th, 2020

Controlled substances and all other solid dosage medications are accepted with no questions asked.   Please don’t bring your pill containers or other identifying information like labels.  Identification is not required and there is no cost for the disposal.

  • Please bring a plastic bag filled with all your outdated and/or unused medication. 
  • Liquid medication will be accepted if stuffed into a ziplock bag with enough paper towels to absorb all the liquid.  Please use separate bags for each liquid medication.
  • NO inhalers

The Drain Commissioner's office will also be on-site to collect sharps and needles.

  • Sharp collection is open to residents. Businesses and medical facilities are not allowed to dispose of sharps at this event.
  • Sharps need to be in a heavy plastic container {i.e. Red "Sharp" Box or empty plastic laundry detergent jug sealed with tape
