dispose-a-med program expands reach thanks to grant

The Marana Police Department and Arizona Youth Partnership are joining forces to expand the town’s dispose-a-med program. Thanks to a grant from AYP, the Marana Police Department will be able to collect a wider variety of medicines. 

Most agencies that conduct dispose-a-med programs, events where people can safely dispose of expired medicines, only take pills because of the cost of associated with other items. The AYP grant will allow Marana to be the only agency in the area that can take liquids, gels and things like needles. “
