Who We Are

The Illinois Prescription Drug Repository Coalition is an alliance of organizations working to operationalize the Illinois Drug Reuse Opportunity Program Act.

Pharmaceutical donation and reuse programs are distinct prescription drug programs providing for unused prescription drugs to be donated and re-dispensed to patients. Such drug repository programs began with state legislative action in 1997. There are 38 states and Guam with enacted laws for donation and reuse.

Because we believe prescriptions are for people,

not landfills, not lakes, not incinerators.
