Saturday, April 26 is National Prescription Drug Takeback Day, and Wheaton Police and the Will County Sheriff's Office are taking part by collecting unwanted prescription drugs.

Sponsored by the DEA, the National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day aims to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposing of prescription drugs, while also educating the general public about the potential for abuse of medications.

Residents can drop off unwanted medications at:
  • Wheaton Police Department. 900 W. Liberty Drive, Wheaton, IL 60187
  • DuPage County Sheriff, 501 N. County Farm Road, Wheaton, IL 60187
The DEA cannot accept liquids, needles or sharps — only pills and patches.
