The Divernon Police Department has announced a new drug takeback dropbox now available for residents and surrounding communities. The convenient Dropbox receptacle, located in the Divernon Village Hall foyer, is available for use Monday through Friday from 8 am to 5 pm.
The Dropbox is intended for the disposal of medications that are no longer needed, particularly those left over after the passing of a loved one. However, it is not intended for disposing of illegal drugs, pet medication, needles, thermometers, or aerosol cans.
Residents and members of surrounding communities are encouraged to take advantage of this convenient and free service by safely disposing of their unused medications. By providing a safe and accessible way to dispose of medications, law enforcement hopes to prevent prescription drug abuse and accidental poisoning.
