Needles & Syringes

Needles & Syringes


Do not put in the garbage!

No syringes or sharps, even if clipped, can be disposed of in the garbage. Used syringes should be placed in a puncture resistant container with a tight fitting lid, labeled "SHARPS, DO NOT RECYCLE" and taken to your local landfill and put in the special collection bin for disposal - free (limit one gallon per trip).

Some local pharmacies take them back (call first), or ask your doctor or pharmacist.
