The Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago (MWRD) is joining the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration’s national unwanted medicine “Take-Back” initiative on September 27th and will be collecting unwanted medications at three MWRD facilities:
Stickney Water Reclamation Plant, 6001 W. Pershing Road, Cicero O’Brien Water Reclamation Plant (formerly North Side), 3500 Howard Street, Skokie Calumet Water Reclamation Plant, 400 East 130th Street, Chicago (Enter North on Ellis Ave. at 130th St. because of plant construction)
These one day events are a responsible, environmentally-friendly way for your residents to dispose of unwanted, unneeded or expired prescription drugs in a safe and secure manner.
