U.S. DEA Drug Collection schedule


On Saturday, April 22, 2023, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. three of our water reclamation plants will be accepting unwanted medication in partnership with the National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day:

Calumet WRP • 400 E. 130th St., Chicago

O’Brien WRP • 3500 Howard St., Skokie

Stickney WRP • 6001 W. Pershing Rd., Cicero

While these plants and the Barbara J. McGowan Main Office Building at 100 E. Erie St., Chicago, have permanent collection boxes, the MWRD has participated in the take-back initiative since 2010 to prevent and reduce accidental contamination of streams, rivers and lakes in our area.
