Markham's Prescription Drug Take Back Program

Prescription Pill Bottle

The Markham’s Prescription Drug Take Back Program is a free service for residents to collect their unused and expired prescription and nonprescription drugs.

This free service is provided to reduce access to unused and expired prescription and non-prescription drugs in order to prevent misuse that can lead to poisoning or death.

Please dispose of unused and expired prescription or non-prescription drugs responsibly.

  • Do not leave them lying around unattended.
  • Do not throw them in the trash or down the sink.
  • Do not flush them down the toilet.

Please bring any unused or expired prescription or non-prescription drugs to any one of dozens of collection boxes located in public safety buildings such as the Markham Police Department and other locations throughout Cook County.

This free service is not available for use by retail businesses or other companies that handle prescription drugs.  

For times and alternate locations, see the Cook County interactive map on their website or email Cook County at sheriff.recycling@cookcountyil.gov.
