Unwanted Medication Program
In a joint effort between the Lockport Police Department, Lockport Township Government and the Will County Land Use Department, the city has implemented an unwanted medication program. Each year this country improperly disposes of thousands of pounds of medication. Much of this medication is flushed into the sewage system.
This method causes serious interruption to the wastewater treatment process. The City of Lockport encourages citizens to bring their unwanted medication to the Lockport Police Department and place the items in the secured drop box located in the front lobby.
Any expired prescription or non-prescription medication that is no longer needed can be safely disposed of at our collection location.
