Marquette County Solid Waste Management Authority (MCSWMA) was awarded a D.E.Q. grant to start a household medication collection program in Marquette County. With grant funding, we have added three collections points to the county by installing drug-collection boxes at the Forsyth Township, Chocolay Township, and City of Negaunee police stations. Marquette County residents can drop-off medications at any of our drop-off locations at no charge!
Look for this box at any of Marquette County’s participating Police Departments!
