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 waste water 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.
Acceptable prescription and non-prescription medications include pills, salves and liquid
medications in original containers. Items not in original containers must be packaged in non-leaking
containers. Unacceptable items include sharp needles,
syringes, IV bags, thermometers and medical waste.
The prescription and non-prescription drug disposal program is anonymous and does not
require any identification to deposit medications. The goal of the program is to keep our environment and
residents safe from the harmful effects of improper disposal of medications. The medications will be taken to
an approved location by the Environmental Protection Agency for safe disposal. This is a free service to this
community. This is a 24 hour service.
