Lipinski Announces Installation of Drop Box for Unwanted Prescription Drugs at Stickney Village Hall

Congressman Dan Lipinski (IL-3) is helping Stickney residents dispose of unwanted prescription drugs by partnering with Mayor Deborah Morelli and CVS Health to have a drop box installed at Stickney Village Hall.  Residents can come to the Police Department at the Village Hall at 6533 Pershing Road to drop off prescription drugs that are expired or no longer needed. 

“Having unwanted drugs sitting around the house can lead to serious problems,” stated Rep. Lipinski.  “Opioid abuse has touched families and communities across our nation.  It is my hope that improved access to drop boxes like this will help fight this ongoing crisis by getting rid of another potential gateway to addiction.  I would like to thank Mayor Morelli, the Stickney Police Department, and CVS for their hard work on this important issue.”

“CVS Pharmacy is dedicated to collaborating with organizations like The Partnership for Drug-Free Kids and local law enforcement to prevent the abuse of unwanted and expired medication,” said Tom Davis, RPh, Vice President of Pharmacy Professional Practices at CVS Health.  “The installment of drug collection receptacles is part of our ongoing commitment to battle prescription drug abuse in the U.S. and to help people in the communities we serve on their path to better health.”

Municipalities interested in adding a drop box for unwanted prescription drugs at their village or city hall are encouraged to call Congressman Lipinski’s Chicago office at 773-948-6223.  Last month, Lipinski helped bring drop boxes to the communities of Bridgeview and Countryside.
