Chapin Village Board deals with medical waste

    Medical waste consisting of used hypodermic needles, syringes and empty medication vials have been discovered in the Village of Chapin’s sewer system. Village residents received a letter from trustees reminding everyone that disposing of medical items this way is prohibited by Illinois law, puts Village employees at risk, and could cause damage to the sewer system.
