The Lincolnshire Police Department will participate in the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration's National Drug Take Back Initiative on Saturday, April 26, from 10 a.m. to noon. The take-back day provides residents an opportunity to safely dispose of expired, unwanted, or unused pharmaceutical controlled substances and other medications. Drug collection will take place at the Lincolnshire Village Hall, One Olde Half Day Road. Controlled, noncontrolled, and over-the-counter substances will be collected. All solid dosage pharmaceutical products and liquids in consumer containers will be accepted. Removal of the Rx labels from bottles is not required. All material collected, including the Rx vials, will be incinerated. Used intravenous (IV) solutions, injectables, and syringes will not be accepted due to the potential hazard posed by blood borne pathogens.
