Prescription Drug Collection Program

Rx Return

Residents can safely dispose of unwanted, unused and expired medicines in the front lobby of the Romeoville Police Dept., 1050 W. Romeo Rd. The Village of Romeoville has joined many local law enforcement agencies by instituting the collection box.

The drug collection box is located near the glass partition separating the police department from Village Hall.

ACCEPTED ITEMS

  • Unneeded prescription medication
  • Over the counter medication
  • Prescription ointments
  • Vitamins
  • Sample medication
  • Prescription patches
  • Medication for pets

UNACCEPTED ITEMS

  • Aerosol cans
  • Inhalers
  • Hydrogen peroxide
  • Thermometers
  • Needles and other sharps
  • Ointments
  • Lotions
  • Liquids

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?
Properly disposing of medicines is important to prevent abuse or poisoning and protect the environment. Prescription drug abuse is a growing problem, especially among teens, and accidental poisonings from medicines are on the rise. Medicines flushed down the drain or disposed of in the trash can pollute bodies of water, harm wildlife and end up in drinking water supplies.
