How and where can I safely dispose of my prescription medication?

The City of Warrenville has installed a prescription drug recycling drop-box in the lobby of the Police Department. Prescription drugs may be placed in this container during regular business hours (Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to  7 p.m.) and must meet the following criteria:

  • Prescription drugs must be brought into the department already sealed in a zip-lock style plastic bag or in its original container
  • No loose pills will be accepted or may be brought into the Police station
  • Other prohibited items include: syringes, lotions, liquids, and illegal street drugs

Collected drugs will be safely disposed of through a professional recycling service. Visit our Resources for the Public page (Find the Help you Need) for additional information.
