Save A StarIn 2011 the Mundelein Police Department and Save A Star Drug Awareness Foundation launched a new pill disposal and collection program. Save A Star is helping initiate Drug Disposal Programs in communities across the United States. The goal of this program is to dispose of prescription and over-the-counter drugs and medications in an environmentally safe way, but most importantly, to keep drugs out of the hands of young children and those who might use drugs for recreational purposes. The Safe A Star Box is located in the Mundelein Police Department lower lobby and is accessible 24 hours a day every day.
