The DuPage County Health Department’s RxBOX program, which has been existence since 2009, currently includes 12 sites throughout DuPage County. All of the RxBox sites are open all year and residents may drop off medications at any site.

RxBOX has collected more than 25 tons of unwanted medications dropped off by county residents at secure locations throughout DuPage County, thus reducing the possibility these medications might fall into the hands of young people.
