Resident Sharps Disposal Service

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 used needles for future disposal:

  1. Place used Sharps in Sharps/biohazard container or hard plastic container with a lid.
  2. Do not store Sharps in glass bottles, aluminum cans, or coffee cans.
  3. Put Sharps in the container needle first.
  4. Keep this container out of reach of children and pets.
