Carol Stream Residents Recycle your Rx

This environmental initiative is a partnership between the Village and the DuPage County Department of Environmental Concerns to reduce the levels of pharmaceutical contamination that have been found in natural streams as well as public drinking water supplies. Pharmaceuticals that are flushed down the toilet make their way into our water supply causing harm to fish and wildlife and may harm people who tap the Great Lakes for their drinking water. Conventional sewage treatment methods were not designed to remove this type of contamination.

Items not accepted in this program include medical sharps and needles, radioactive medicines or household chemical wastes. Information on sharps and needle disposal can be found at www.dupageco.org then click on DepartmentsWaste, Recycling & Green Initiatives (S-Z), then Rx Box Program then DuPage County Recycling Guide – Medications Section.
