2020 drug collections a huge success

The Westshore Enforcement Bureau (WEB) Drug Task Force gratefully acknowledges the citizens of our six western suburbs for actively participating in the DEA's National Prescription Drug Take Back Day on Oct. 24 with 439 pounds of outdated and unwanted medications collected for safe disposal.

In addition, the citizens of our WEB communities were responsible for properly disposing of medications via the use of the 365/24/7 drop boxes located within each of the six police departments to the tune of 2,445 pounds through Oct. 31.

I continue to urge our citizens to make use of the drop boxes whenever the need arises for the purpose of protecting the environment and preventing the diversion of pharmaceuticals for criminal activities.

The WEB Drug Task Force will continue to offer this valuable service to increase the safety and wellness of all Westshore families.
