All Carroll County Housing Authority residents are cordially invited to come join us for a Tenant Open House|Cook-out at Mest Manor. We will be celebrating our long-time resident, Tony Biasi, who has resided at Mest Manor for the past 30 years! He has been an integral part of CCHA as both a resident, as well as, an employee. Tony moved into Mest Manor in February 1992, and shortly thereafter, he joined the CCHA staff in the Maintenance Department for the next 18 years, until retiring in December 2010. We sure hope to see everyone come, and celebrate Tony’s incredible 30 year anniversary!
Some medical conditions require the use of hypodermic needles, syringes, lancets, and scalpel blades. Thus, in an effort to ensure your safety, the Carroll County Housing Authority offers complimentary sharps containers, as well as, proper disposal of our resident’s household sharps. You may pick up a sharps container at the CCHA office during regular business hours. When your sharps container is about three-quarters (3/4) full, please ensure the lid is locked on the container, and return it to the CCHA office for proper disposal. If you have any questions regarding this complimentary disposal service, please contact our office at 815-273-7081.
Just a few reminders when storing needles for future disposal:
Place used sharps in sharps/biohazard container or hard plastic container with a lid.
Do not store sharps in glass bottles, aluminum cans or coffee cans.
Put sharps in the container needle first.
Keep this container out of reach of children and pets.
