MORRIS – It is now possible to drop off any left over medication you may have at any law enforcement building in Grundy County.

In December, the Grundy County Sheriff’s Office installed a medication and sharps take-back box in its administrative building at 111 E. Washington St., Morris, in conjunction with the Grundy County Coroner’s Office.

The Medication and Sharps Take-Back program, through the coroner’s office, allows people with expired or unused medication to drop it off. Instead of ending up in a landfill and eventually the environment, it will now find its way to the incinerator.

The drop-off boxes have been available in other law enforcement buildings throughout the county, including the Minooka, Channahon, Coal City and Morris police departments.

Concerns about medication disposal can stem from possible poisoning from accidental ingestion with children or pets, Illegal use or theft and contamination of water resources.
