Saturday Prescription Drug Disposal: March 12

The Downers Grove Police Department is taking appointments for a special prescription drug disposal to be held on Saturday, March 12, 2016, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. This program is for residents of Downers Grove.

In order to ensure that there are adequate police personnel on hand, appointments must be made in advance by contacting Crime Prevention Specialist Stacy Blaskovich at (630) 434-5641. 

The medications will subsequently be disposed of in accordance to the protocol followed for disposing of drugs being held in evidence. The method used is safe, will not threaten the drinking water, and eliminates the availability of the medications in our resident's homes.

The prescription drug disposal program has been extremely successful. In the two years since launching the program, 573 residents have brought 1191 pounds of prescription drugs to the police department for disposal.
