Prescription Drug Take Back Day
Saturday, April 28th, 2012
Studies are beginning to show detrimental effects on aquatic life from tiny amounts of pharmaceuticals in our water supplies so it’s important to dispose of medicines properly instead of flushing them down the toilet or pouring them down the sink. When medicines accumulate at home, they can become a public health hazard to seniors and teens. You can drop off your unused or expired medications – both over-the-counter and prescription drugs – at many locations throughout Cook County. For more information, including drop-off locations, please see this flyer.
