Saturday, April 22 is National Prescription Drug Takeback Day, and State Senator Don DeWitte (R-St. Charles) is partnering with the Campton Hills Police Department for a drug drop-off event at the Campton Hills Police Station.
Senator DeWitte’s Prescription Drug Drop-Off Event
Saturday, April 22, 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.
Campton Hills Police Department
40W270 LaFox Road, #B, Campton Hills
“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.
