Drug Drop Off
Open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, the Champaign Police Department’s front lobby offers a safe drop box service to properly dispose of your prescriptions or outdated over-the-counter medicines.
This service allows residents to take pain medications and other drugs that people might abuse out of the home and to properly dispose of them; as well as helps to protect our waterways by encouraging citizens not to flush unwanted pharmaceuticals.
Prescriptions, over-the-counter medicines, liquid medication in leakproof containers and veterinary pharmaceuticals are all accepted. Illicit drugs, syringes, needles, thermometers and bloody or infectious waste are not accepted.
Personal information remaining on the containers will not be used and privacy is strictly maintained. The collected drugs will be incinerated, which is the environmentally-preferred disposal method.
Drug Drop-Off services are also available at the Urbana and University of Illinois Police Departments:
