Project Title & Description
COLLECTIONS OF UNWANTED HOUSEHOLD ELECTRONICS AND MEDICINES
This grant agreement between The Macomb County Health Department's Environmental Health Division and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency-Great Lakes National Program Office seeks to divert lead, mercury, contaminants from computer components and traditional landfill disposal, controlled and non-controlled medications from flushing into our waterways.
