National Prescription Drug Take Back Day – Saturday, October 23, 2021

Every day, more than 130 Americans die after overdosing on opioids. As the prescription opioid epidemic continues to worsen, Northwestern Medicine is working alongside the Drug Enforcement Administration to host collection sites for National Prescription Drug Take Back Day. The event aims to provide a safe, convenient and responsible way to dispose of unused opioids and other prescription medications, while also educating the general public about the potential for misuse of medications.

Unused medications thrown in the trash can be retrieved and abused, or illegally sold. If they are flushed, they can contaminate the water supply. Proper disposal of unused drugs saves lives and protects the environment.

Please note, sharps and liquids will not be accepted, and Take Back Day is for community members, not for commercial organizations.

Northwestern Medicine will host six sites for community members to visit from 10 am – 2 pm on Saturday, October 23.

THINK YOU HAVE A HIGH UTILITY BILL?

Contact the Village office at (815) 827-3309.  Staff can look at your prior bills to see if there is a pattern of use. They can also walk you through some of the first things to check into.  Note that during hot summer months you may be using more water due to increased showering or doing a few extra loads of clothes due to changing more frequently.  One simple thing to check for is a running toilet.  Grab some food coloring, add a few drops into the toilet tank.  Wait 10 to 20 minutes and DO NOT FLUSH the toilet.  If the food coloring shows up in the bowl, then water has leached from the tank to the bowl.  This is something that you may not see or hear, but it may be costing you money.  An inexpensive fix of replacing the rubber flapper in the tank may be all you need!

 

The Village will be posting more information over the next several weeks to help Residents understand their utility bill, but feel free to contact the Village at (815) 827-3309 anytime to discuss your account in detail.

 

Thank you!
