Here at the Brookfield Police Department, we are committed to protecting everyone in our community. This includes providing resources to our citizens that will make Brookfield as safe as possible, which is why we have partnered with the Cook County MEDS Disposal Initiative.

Cook County MEDS was formed to educate communities in Cook County about how to properly dispose of expired, unused or unwanted prescription and over-the-counter medications, and to help residents locate the most convenient and secure collection sites.

One of these collection sites is the Brookfield Police Station, 8820 Brookfield Ave. You can drop off your unused medications here with no questions asked. Our goal is simply for medications to be properly disposed of, without risking theft, diversion of the medication or your privacy.

If the Brookfield Police Station is not a convenient collection site for you, visit www.CookCountyMEDS.org to locate a site near you in Cook County.
