Change in SHARPS Policy - 11/19/20

The East Rochester Police Department will longer be able to accept SHARPS for disposal.  Residents wishing to dispose of SHARPS are requested to use an alternate means for disposal.  NYS Law requires hospitals and nursing home facilities to accept sharps from residents free of charge. Some primary care physicians will also accept them from their patients.  Visit Ecopark’s website to access the NYS DOH’s website. Once there, you will be able to review a complete list of facilities that accept SHARPS for free in our area.

According to a number of area sportscasters, it wasn’t supposed to happen that way—the East Rochester Bombers beating the Lyons Lions, 58-57.   While both basketball teams entered the game undefeated, Lyons was known as a powerhouse.  By looking at the history of the two teams, however, perhaps March 24, 1962, was destined to be different.  And what made the outcome of the contest all the more special was that it happened before a crowd estimated to be more than 10,000.
