Community members are invited to drop off expired or unused medications to be properly disposed of. Accepted items that residents may drop off include prescription medications, prescription ointments and patches, vitamins, and pet medicines. Restricted items include needles and illegal drugs.

“Residents of the Grundy County area will be able to come and dispose of their unused or expired prescription drugs in a safe way, ensuring these drugs don’t fall into the wrong hands or put other community members at risk,” Welter said.
