Saturday, April 26 is National Prescription Drug Takeback Day, and several area police departments are taking part by collecting unwanted prescription drugs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

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.

Area drop-off sites include:

  • Burr Ridge Police Department, 7700 S. County Line Road
  • Lemont Police Department, 14600 127th St.
  • Woodridge Police Department, 1 Plaza Drive
  • Hinsdale Police Department, 121 Symonds Drive

The DEA cannot accept liquids, needles or sharps — only pills and patches.
