To help address the vital public safety and public health issue of prescription drug abuse and accidental poisonings, the Village of Lombard is participating in the Drug Enforcement Agency sponsored National Take Back Day on Saturday, April 24, 2021. Anyone wishing to safely dispose of unwanted or expired prescription drugs, is encouraged to bring them to the Lombard Police Department at 235 E. Wilson Ave., on Saturday, April 24, from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. (Please note the event time has changed from 8 a.m. - 12 p.m., to 10 a.m. - 2 p.m.) 

Unused or expired prescription drugs that are commonly found in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse. Studies show that many abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends’ home medicine cabinets. This event provides residents a safe solution for drug disposal.
