[ARCHIVED] Lake County Sheriff’s October Drug Takeback Event

Sheriff John Idleburg invites the community to one of four Lake County Sheriff’s locations on Saturday, October 26, 2019, to drop-off unused and unwanted medications. This Prescription Drug Takeback Day is being sponsored by the Lake County Sheriff’s Office, Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), and Rosalind Franklin University.

The drop-off sites will be open on October 26, 2019 from 10:00AM until 2:00PM. Expired solid prescription drugs, unwanted or unused prescription drugs, over-the-counter drugs and pills, as well as controlled and non-controlled substances will be accepted. Injectable drugs and syringes can’t be accepted.

Sheriff John Idleburg said, “If you have unused and unwanted drugs in your home, this is the perfect opportunity to dispose of them in an environmentally friendly manner. Tossing unused drugs in the garbage or toilet leads to contamination of nature and our waterways. All drugs collected during this event will be disposed of properly. Thank you to the DEA, Rosalind Franklin University, and our site locations hosts for collaborating to make this event possible.”
