Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

    Sec. 17. Pharmaceutical disposal. Notwithstanding any provision of law, any county or municipality may authorize the use of its city hall, police department, or any other facility under the county's or municipality's control to display a container suitable for use as a receptacle for used, expired, or unwanted pharmaceuticals. These used, expired, or unwanted pharmaceuticals may include unused medication and prescription drugs, as well as controlled substances if collected in accordance with federal law. This receptacle shall only permit the deposit of items, and the contents shall be locked and secured. The container shall be accessible to the public and shall have posted clearly legible signage indicating that expired or unwanted prescription drugs may be disposed of in the receptacle. The county or municipality shall provide continuous or regular notice to the public regarding the availability of the receptacle. To the extent allowed under federal law, pharmaceuticals collected under this Section may be disposed of in a drug destruction device, as defined in Section 22.58 of the Environmental Protection Act.
