Village Provides Sharps Kiosk at Police Department

Village of Westmont
Date Issued: August 26, 2014

The Village of Westmont has placed a Sharps Kiosk in the lobby of the Westmont Police Department, 500 N. Cass Avenue. Residents will have access to the kiosk during normal business hours, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., to safely drop off unwanted or used needles.

Every day, millions of people across the country self-inject their medications, but they don’t always dispose of used sharps, syringes and lancets properly. These items may end up in the environment, where they put others at risk of injury or infection. That’s why laws to regulate their disposal are now in place in a growing number of states.

The Village of Westmont has partnered with Waste Management to create this opportunity and protect our community. This program allows an easy, environmentally sound way to contain used sharps and provide for their safe disposal and destruction. For more information, or to obtain a personal sharps container, please contact Deputy Chief Ross Brenza at 630-981-6323.
