July 11, 2019 The Big Red Barrel Project is coming 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.

  • 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
