Prescription drug collection is available in the lobby of the Police Department at Village Hall, 123 Madison St. A secure drug collection container, which functions like a postal box, was purchased using a grant from the Illinois EPA. The box can hold up to 50 pounds of material. Needles or other medical waste are not accepted. Police personnel dispose of the drugs in accordance with established procedures. Safe disposal of drugs is becoming increasingly important, as trace residues of some medications can turn up in the water supply from flushing of unwanted prescription drugs. For more information on the drug collection service call 708.386.3800 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
