Medication Disposal Event
The Vermilion County Sheriff’s Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration will collect unwanted medications from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, September 27 in front of the Vermilion County Courthouse at 7 North Vermilion Street in Danville.
This will give the public an opportunity to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs.
The collection is for pills or patches only. The DEA cannot accept liquids or needles or sharps, or medical equipment. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.
