How to Dispose of Needles and Syringes
Syringes and needles disposed of improperly are a health hazard to humans and animals.
It is important to dispose of all "sharps" appropriately. "Sharps" include needles, lancets, scapel blades, or other medical instruments that could cause a cut or puncture. Disposing of sharps properly protects anyone who might come in contact with your trash from the risk of injury or infection - this includes family members and sanitation workers. Never throw a loose sharp directly into the trash. Sharps should be placed in a rigid, puncture-resistant container with a secure lid immediately after use. Store the sharps container in a secure location, away from children and pets. When the container is full, seal it, and be sure to label it "Sharps." Each community has specific regulations for handling sharps and other medical wastes. Call your local health department or solid waste management system for the regulations in your area.
Please utilize proper disposal of all "Sharps" including needles, lancets, and scalpel blades. Thank you!
