RXBox Medication Disposal

Drug BoxUnwanted and unused medications can be dropped off in the RxBox medication disposal box located in the outer lobby of the Roselle Police Station, 103 S. Prospect St. The RxBox is accessible 24 hours a day.

Acceptable medications for the disposal box include over-the-counter medications, prescription medications, ointments, and liquid medications. Please bring in all unwanted or expired prescription drugs and medications in a clear, plastic zip-lock bag, and recycle the prescription bottles at home.

Please DO NOT dispose needles, syringes, radioactive materials, medical waste, household chemicals, mercury thermometers, or bio-hazardous waste in the box. Properly packaged sharps can be disposed at the Roselle Fire Department; learn more about this program.

The medications will be disposed through procedures outlined by the DuPage County Health Department, keeping them from contaminating our environment. The Village of Roselle partnered with SCARCE to secure a grant from the DuPage Foundation to administer this program.
