The East Dundee Police Department Lobby now houses a pill and drug disposal Drop Box.
Collection boxes are installed only in secure law enforcement facilities for the consumer disposal and subsequent incineration of medications. The goal of this program is to dispose of prescription and over-the-counter drugs and medications in an environmentally safe way, but most importantly, to keep drugs out of the hands of young children and those who might use drugs for recreational purposes.
