Great Lakes Clean Water Organization
The GLIN March Site of the Month is the Great Lakes Clean Water Organization, a nonprofit promoting collection and disposal of unused/unwanted drugs in a safe and approved manner. Their aim is to keep the harmful effects of drugs out of ground water, surface water and municipal water systems in Michigan and the Great Lakes region
Yellow Jug Old Drugs is a program operated by Great Lakes Clean Water Organization to collect and properly dispose of unwanted/unused drugs in a safe and approved manner to help keep our water clean. The Yellow Jugs Old Drugs containers and contents are picked up at pharmacies and are then transported to a Waste-to-Energy facility for secure and assured destruction. As of October 2013, the Great Lakes Clean Water Organization has collected and properly disposed of 42 tons of drug waste.
GLIN links hundreds of agencies and organizations serving the Great Lakes region. You may not have visited them all yet, especially with new data and information and more partners coming online every month. Because partnership is the core of GLIN, each month we highlight the wealth of information available on the web site of one active GLIN partner. These partners work closely with the GLIN Project Team to ensure that their information is integrated into the regional network; in turn, these partners point back to relevant GLIN pages from
wherever appropriate on their own web sites so that people can easily find information about a topic of interest.
