ST. CHARLES – Next week, State Representative Dan Ugaste (R-Geneva) is hosting a prescription drug drop off with the South Elgin Police Department. He invites constituents to join him on Friday, August 11th from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. at the South Elgin Police Department (10 N Water Street, South Elgin) to dispose of their unwanted or expired prescription medications.
“Keeping our communities safe includes appropriately disposing of our expired or unwanted prescription medications,” said Rep. Ugaste. “I invite 65th District constituents to join us next week for this drive-thru event. Start your weekend off at our prescription drug drop off and help prevent prescription drug abuse.”
This is a free outdoor event that allows constituents to remain in their vehicles. Accepted medications include prescription and over the counter medications, prescription ointments and patches, pet medications, and vitamins. Needles and liquids will not be accepted.
For constituents who cannot attend this event, there will be another prescription drug drop off with Rep. Ugaste in late September in Campton Hills. More information will follow for that event. Constituents can call (630) 797-5530 with any questions about this event.
