How to Dispose of Sharps

Once used, any of the Sharps listed below should be placed in a Sharps disposal container. 

  • Hypodermic needles
  • Pasteur pipettes
  • Syringes
  • Scalpel blades
  • Lancets/“fingerstick” devices
  • Auto-Injectors
  • Infusion sets
  • Capillary tubes
  • Razor blades
  • Connection needles/sets
  • Broken glass from the laboratory including slides and slide covers and more

Official disposal containers are leak-proof and made of a puncture-resistant plastic and puncture-resistant lid that can be handled without concern or risk of exposure. If an FDA-cleared container is not available a heavy-duty plastic household container, such as a laundry detergent container can be used as an alternative. Never place any loose Sharps in any trashcan or recycling bin- and never flush Sharps down the toilet. If disposed of improperly, others are put in harm’s way. Medical Waste Pros helps businesses of all sizes as well as homes find safe sharps disposal services that are right for their exact needs.
