Tom Cullerton urges residents to dispose of unwanted prescription drugs

VILLA PARK – State Senator Tom Cullerton (D-Villa Park) is proud of the efforts made by DuPage County Law Enforcement to safety dispose of unwanted prescription drugs, vitamins, dietary supplements and pet medications year long.

More than 10 local police departments will participate in National Drug Take on Saturday, Oct. 27, but Cullerton wants to remind residents that many of these locations are available year-round to promote efforts to eliminate the abuse of controlled prescription drugs.

“The opioid addiction does not discriminate,” Cullerton said. “We must work together to keep unnecessary drugs out of our homes to prevent and eliminate the opioid crisis in our communities.”

The following police departments are safe disposal locations for unwanted drugs year-round: Addison Police Department, Bensenville Police Department, Bloomingdale Police Department, Elmhurst Police Department, Glen Ellyn Police Department, Glendale Heights, Itasca Police Department, Roselle Police Department, Villa Park Police Department and Wood Dale Police Department.
