Provide life-saving drug disposal sites in Cook County

safe disposal 3

Unless medications are properly disposed of, they can contaminate lakes, streams, and drinking water supplies. And water treatment facilities cannot remove pharmaceuticals from water, creating health risks for you and your family, as well as our aquatic friends. Safe disposal also means that dangerous prescription drugs are less likely to be abused or misused.

Cook County can be a leader in Illinois and across the nation by providing safe, permanent, and free pharmaceutical drop off sites for its residents.
