Champaign-Urbana Public Health District

Sharps and medication disposal

Friday - Sep 04, 2009

2016 update - Service no longer offered.

Carle Foundation will now provide free sharps boxes for anyone who has syringes and needles to dispose of. Persons can pick these up at the Urbana Carle Rx Express location in the hospital or at any of the Carle RX sites in Champaign-Urbana and then return them for a new one when they are full. They will only accept the boxes they give out

Urbana Carle Rx Express location in the hospital and the Carle Rx Express located in Old Farm Shoppes will also accept old medications (pills, liquids, inhalers, etc.) for disposal. Please remove any identification from the bottles before you bring them in.

Anyone may take part in the service. You do not need to be a Carle patient. Family members or others can pick up and return boxes if you are homebound.
