Rep. Chesney & Stephenson County Sheriff David Snyders to host Prescription Drug Drop Off Event in Lena on Sept. 4

State Representative Andrew Chesney and Stephenson County Sheriff David Snyders will be hosting a drive-through Prescription Drug Drop-Off event in Lena on Saturday, September 4 from 9:30am-11:00am. The event collects unwanted or expired prescription drugs and safely disposes of them for FREE.

This event will occur at Alliance Commodities- Pearl City Elevator, Inc. at 4306 W Galena Rd, Lena (just North of US 20 on Galena Road across from Rafters) from 9:30am-11:00am on Saturday, September 4th.

A FREE 3′ x 5′ Illinois-made American Flag will be given to the first ten (10) participants. Limit one per household.

Accepted Medications include: prescription medications, prescription ointments & patches, pet medications, vitamins

Prohibited Items not accepted: Needles, Illegal Drugs

Medications turned in will be incinerated, meaning there is no requirement to remove personal identifying information, but participants may certainly do so if they choose.

“I want to thank Stephenson County Sheriff David Snyders for his willingness to host this event with me to help keep prescription drugs from getting into the wrong hands in our community,” said Rep. Chesney. “Many area residents may have been sitting on these unused medications since before the pandemic even started. This is a great, free opportunity to properly dispose of these medications.”

The prescription drug drop off is an outdoors drive-through event which allows you to remain in your vehicle. Drivers should follow the marked lanes when entering and exiting the parking lot. Brochures on state programs will also be available.
