The Matteson Police Department has been designated as a secured site for turning in unused prescription drugs. The Matteson Police and Cook County Sheriff's Department have partnered to offer an easy solution for residents of the Village of Matteson and neighboring communities to deposit any expired or unused medication. Throwing away old medication into the sewer system, water system, or even depositing it into the garbage often leads to contamination of our ground and water system. In order to decrease pollution, simply bring your unused medication, deposit it into the secured bin, and we will safely depose of the medication in an eco-friendly way. (No liquids or needles).
