The Town of Cicero Police Department is a Sharp Collection Site
There are many individuals with serious health conditions who manage their care at home and use syringes. For example, people with diabetes use syringes to inject their own insulin and use lancets every day to test their blood glucose. In addition, injection drug users use syringes and needles. Safe disposal of sharps is critically important to optimize health, safety and protection of the environment. The best way to ensure that people are protected from potential injury or disease transmission of blood borne diseases due to needle sticks is to follow established guidelines for the proper containment of “sharps” syringes, needles and lancets and other safer disposal practices.
We do not accept any loose sharps or needles. They must be in a puncture resistant package.
