Keep Northern Illinois Beautiful started their single-day medicine collection events in June 2008. By 2011, they had expanded to 6 drop-off sites in 5 counties (Winnebago, Stephenson, JoDaviess, Carroll and Boone).
Their partners in providing this important service to the community include the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency, Rock River Water Reclamation District, Veolia Environmental Services, OSF Saint Anthony Medical Center Department of Pharmacy, Rockford Health Systems, Swedish American Hospital, Winnebago County Sheriff's Department, Winnebago County Health Department, local pharmacies and Illinois-Indiana Sea Grant.
So far their Medication Disposal Program has properly disposed of more than 12,740 pounds of unused medicine.
This is an all-volunteer operation. If you would like to volunteer, or if you have questions about the event, please call John Kloster-Prew at 815-637-1343.
