Pharmaceutical Disposal Drop Boxes Now Available in All Chicago Police Stations

The Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH) in partnership with the Chicago Police Department (CPD) announced that its pharmaceutical disposal drop box program is now available at all Chicago police stations to allow citywide accessibility for the proper disposal of expired and unused prescription and over-the-counter drugs.

Available 24 hours a day year-round, Chicago's pharmaceutical disposal program offers residents a convenient and environmentally friendly alternative to flushing medicines into the waste water stream or placing them in municipal landfills. The main goals of the program are to help avoid unintended use, reduce or prevent recreational pharmaceutical use and to keep contaminants out of Chicago's public waterways. By using the police facilities as a drop-off location, controlled substances can be deposited safely and destroyed under the observation of sworn law enforcement officials. Please remove all labels from bottles or boxes before depositing in the drop box.

The police stations in the Logan Square Area are:
14th District Police Station - 2150 N. California Av.
25th District Police Station - 5555 W. Grand Av.

Support Neighbor Owned Businesses

A little goes a long way. What happens when you shift just a small amount of your shopping dollars toward independently-owned businesses? You improve the economy - local businesses put more money back into the community than chain stores. Help local businesses expand & grow - they create jobs or preserve jobs. Help the environment - you'll reduce your carbon footprint. If every household in Chicago shifted $365.00 annually, the impact would approach $100,000,000.00.
Eat, Drink & Buy Local 365!
Go to www.eatdrinkbuylocal.org to take the pledge to shift $365.00 or more a year from big chain stores to local businesses. Your community will benefit and you'll feel better too.
