Senator McConchie’s and Senator DeWitte’s Prescription Drug Drop-Off Event
Saturday, October 29, 2022, 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.
Algonquin Police Department
2200 Harnish Drive, Algonquin

“By properly disposing of unused and expired medications, we are protecting our water supply from contamination, and preventing accidental poisonings or misuse of drugs,” said Sen. DeWitte. “I think we all have items in our medicine cabinet that we no longer need, so this provides the perfect opportunity to safely dispose of drugs and vitamins and prevent accidental harm.”

Human and pet prescription and over-the-counter drugs and vitamins will be accepted, and those dropping off unused or expired medications can remain in their vehicles while event volunteers collect their items. Liquids, creams, needles, and illegal drugs will not be accepted.
