Skagit County Public Health accepting comments on proposed Product Stewardship Plan for secure medicine return program in Skagit County.

The accumulation of unused medicines in homes is a public and environmental health issue. In February 2018, Skagit County adopted Skagit County Code 12.20 Secure Medicine Return ordinance to create and fund a comprehensive medicine return system for Skagit County. As part of the ordinance implementation, the stewardship organization named MED Project LLC submitted a proposed Product Stewardship Plan to Skagit County Public Health. Public Health is reviewing the proposed secure medicine return stewardship plan.

Public Health welcomes public comments on the proposed Product Stewardship Plan. Comments may be submitted to Public Health through September 30, 2018.

You may submit your written comments to:
Britt Pfaff Dunton, Skagit County Public Health, 700 South Second Street, Room 301, Mount Vernon WA 98273 or via email at EH@co.skagit.wa.us
