A VERY Successful TakeBack Day
Jessica Irvin of the Ottawa County Opiate Task Force reported that the DEA Takeback Day on 10/26 was the MOST successful event yet: at the 6 designated drop-off spots in Ottawa County at Holland Hospital, Health Pointe, Spectrum Health, NOCH, Spring Lake Fire Dept., Coopersville Sheriff’s Office,
532.3 lbs of Medication and 135.5 lbs of Sharps
were collected from 300 people.
The 532.2 lbs of medications is estimated to contain:
- 6,346 Opiate Pills
- 1,328 Stimulant Pills
- 4,570 Sedative Pills
This is one of the most effective ways we, as community members can contribute to the fight against the opioid epidemic.
Look for the next DEA Takeback Day on April 25, 2020!
