Drug Take Back Program

 Pictured below is Deputy Van Horn and Officer Richnak during a designated Drug Take Back Day!  Residents of Bay County are encouraged to take part in this event and are able to bring in their unwanted or unused medications and turn them over with no questions asked.



The purpose of the Bay County Sheriff's Office Drug Take Back Program is for the safe and confidential disposal for unused prescription drugs.  The red lock box is located in the lobby of the Bay County Sheriff's Office at 503 Third St., Bay City, MI 48708.  Simply drop your unused or unwanted prescriptions into the box during business hours, Monday - Friday 8am - 4:30pm.



This box is not intended for syringes or liquid medications.



"It is especially important to dispose of unwanted prescription meds as the county is in the grips of a heroin epidemic, and frequently addicts will look through medicine cabinets looking for opiate - based painkillers".
