The Village of Elk Grove, in conjunction with SWANCC (Solid Waste Agency of Northern Cook County), collects old medications and sharps (needles/syringes) for environmentally safe disposal.
Residents of Elk Grove Village are encouraged to bring their non-controlled medications (pill form only) and sharps to the Fire Administration Office located in the lower level of the Village Hall for disposal. We cannot accept the following items: liquids, gels, creams, ointments or controlled substances (narcotics, stimulants, depressants, hallucinogens, anabolic steroids or cannabis).
Drop-offs are accepted Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:30 and 4:30 pm. Items must be accepted by a staff member and any items deemed unsafe will be refused. If you have any questions, please email Battalion Chief Michael Sharp (firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone (847) 734-8000.
