Farmington Hills Police Department offers free at-home drug disposal pouches

Farmington Hills, Mich.

The Farmington Hills Police Department, in partnership with Beaumont Health, is offering one free Deterra pouch per person available from the front desk at police headquarters at 31655 W. Eleven Mile Road.

Deterra pouches offer an easy way to dispose of unneeded or expired medications safely and conveniently at home.

Using a simple three-step process, the Deterra Drug Deactivation System permanently deactivates any medication including opioids.

Each Deterra pouch has a water-soluble inner pod containing activated carbon. Drugs are placed in the pouch, warm water is added, then the pouch is sealed, shaken, and disposed of in the regular trash.
