Spectrum Health Big Rapids and Reed City Hospitals are set for another medication take back day next week.


The take back program is a partnership with the Ten16 Recovery Network. Over the last year, the program has served 221 people, collecting 359.9 pounds of medication and 287.7 pounds of needles.


Anyone who uses needles to manage their medication or has leftover prescriptions is encouraged to bring the materials to the hospitals during the specified times for proper disposal.


Unwanted medications to be accepted include over-the-counter medications, prescriptions, liquids, inhalers, ointments, pet medications and needles.


The event will be held from 3 to 6 p.m. Tuesday, March 28, in the main lobby of Reed City Family Practice and from 3 to 6 p.m. Thursday, March 30, at the Big Rapids Hospital Main Lobby.
