Ananich’s Prescription Drug Disposal Program Moves Forward

State Representative Jim Ananich (D-Flint) continues to push for additional resources to help safely dispose of unused prescription drugs. Last week he successfully included language in the House Agriculture Subcommittee budget that highlights the work of the Clean Sweep program, which supports efforts across Michigan to dispose of unused pesticides and was recently expanded to include prescription drug collection.

“Making it convenient and cost-effective for consumers to get rid of unused medications helps keep drugs away from our kids and out of our water,” said Ananich. “Efforts like Clean Sweep and drug take back programs conducted by law enforcement are an important part of keeping our communities safer and healthier.”

Ananich has also sponsored bipartisan legislation that would create a prescription drug reuse and disposal program for the entire state. That legislation is currently pending before the House Health Policy Committee.
