The Village of Elk Grove, in conjunction with SWANCC (Solid Waste Agency of Northern Cook County), collects used sharps (needles/syringes) for environmentally safe disposal. Sharps are accepted at the Fire Administration Office located in the lower level of the Village Hall Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:30 and 4:30 pm. Items must be in an approved container and must be accepted by a staff member. Any items deemed unsafe will be refused.
Residents are encouraged to bring their unused or unwanted medications (pill form only) to the Police Department Lobby. The lobby drop box is available 24 hours a day.
