The La Grange Park Police Department, in cooperation with the United States Department of Justice, has installed a Prescription Drug Disposal Box in the lobby of the Police Department. Unwanted pharmaceuticals may be safely disposed of by depositing them in the collection box. Needles or sharps cannot be accepted and must be disposed of as required by law. The disposal box was acquired after several successful drug collection events conducted in cooperation with the Cool Village Commission of La Grange Park. Because of the success achieved during those events, the Village decided to pursue a permanent disposal site. There is no charge for disposing of unwanted pharmaceuticals and the service is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
