THE BUFFALO GROVE POLICE DEPARTMENT ACCEPTING OLD OR UNUSED PRESCRIPTION MEDICINE

The Buffalo Grove Police Department (BGPD) and the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) are once again partnering to provide a safe place for residents to drop off unneeded or expired drug prescriptions.

The  Buffalo  Grove  Police  Department  (BGPD)  and  the  Drug  Enforcement Agency  (DEA)  are  once  again  partnering  to  provide  a  safe  place  for  residents  to  drop  off  unneeded  or expired  drug  prescriptions.  On  Saturday,  April  28,  from  10  a.m.  until  2  p.m.,  at  the  BGPD  station  (46 Raupp  Boulevard,  Buffalo  Grove)  the  agencies  will  provide  a  green  mailbox  in  the  station's  lobby,  where residents  can  conveniently  and  responsibly  drop  off  prescriptions  that  are  no  longer  needed.    Sharps  and needles  cannot  be  disposed  of  at  this  event. The  Drug  Take  Back  initiative,  which  began  in  2010  and  includes  departments  from  all  50  states,  collected over  906  tons  of  old  medication  in  2017.  The  DEA,  in  partnership  with  local  law  enforcement  agencies, has  collected  over  4,500  tons  of  medication  since  the  program’s  inception.   

The  BGPD  is  proud  to  remind  residents  that  the  drug  take  back  mailbox  will  be  in  the  lobby  permanently, should  residents  miss  the  me  slot  on  Saturday.
