Drug Take Back Program
The Orland Park Police Department consistently participates in the National Prescription Drug Take Back Project sponsored by the U.S. Justice Department Drug Enforcement Administration. This project is very successful in providing for the appropriate disposal of unwanted prescription drugs and is very popular with the residents of the Village of Orland Park. The Take Back Project disposal days will be advertised on the Orland Park Police website and on the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration website twice a year (Spring/Fall).

In an effort to provide this valuable service throughout the year, the Orland Park Police Department will accept unwanted prescription drugs from the public in accordance with the following guidelines;

Prescription Drugs will be accepted at Orland Park Police Headquarters on Mondays thru Thursdays (excluding holidays) between 0900 and 1300 hours.

The following items will not be accepted;

  • Any drug in liquid form
  • Aerosol type medications
  • Hypodermic needles and Syringes

Currently residents are permitted to discard used syringes with the safety caps installed with their regular garbage using a rigid container (coffee container, or laundry bottle) sealed with duct tape.

Residents may also use a bio-hazard container and pay for bio-hazard disposal service through several companies. Occasionally a doctor's office, hospital or other medical provider will offer disposal service to their clients.

Prescription Drugs will be accepted for disposal from Village of Orland Park Residents only.
