Sharps Drop-Off FAQs

How do I dispose of sharps?

Open
  1. Once used, any Sharps should be placed in a Sharps disposal container. These 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.
  2. Be sure to never place any loose Sharps in any trashcan or recycling bin- and never flush Sharps down the toilet. If you do, you’re putting janitors, housekeepers, children, and other sanitation workers in harm’s way.
  3. Even if it’s just for your pet, the guidelines are the same- be sure to use the same Sharps guidelines to safeguard anyone who could be exposed to Sharps waste.
