Medicine collection program available to Rantoul residents
Rantoul residents have an opportunity to safely dispose of their unwanted or expired medications Monday through Friday from 7am-5pm. The Police Department collects and properly disposes of pharmaceuticals to help reduce accidental poisonings of children and pets, prevent drug diversion and abuse, and limit environmental impacts.
Residents may drop off their medications in the collection box in the lobby of the Rantoul Police Department.
The program accepts prescription and over-the-counter medicines, liquid medication in leak-proof containers and veterinary pharmaceuticals. The program will not accept illicit drugs, syringes, needles, thermometers, or bloody and infectious waste.
Any drugs that are collected are incinerated, which is the environmentally preferred disposal method.
For more information about the program call the Police Department at: 217-893-5600.
