Sharps Containers

Five-quart sharps containers are available at Orland Township for $15 each (the price includes disposal fee). In order to use Orland Township’s sharps disposal service, you may purchase a container from the Township and return it when full for proper disposal. For a $10 fee, the Township will dispose of a sharps container purchased elsewhere.

Old, expired or unwanted medications may be disposed in the secure drop box, located behind the reception desk in the main lobby at Orland Township.
