The Elmhurst Police Department is partnering with the Drug Enforcement Administration for the Prescription Drug Take Back Day on Saturday, October 27, 2018. Officers will be on-hand in the parking lot of the police station to collect expired, unused or unwanted prescription drugs for safe destruction, from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM.

If you are unable to drop off unwanted prescription drugs on the Take Back Day, you may drop them off at any time to the prescription drug collection box located in the police department lobby.
