What are the sharp disposal program guidelines?
Bring residentially-generated sharps/needles in a red biohazard container or a rigid plastic laundry detergent bottle with a lid or a coffee can. Containers must have a clear visible lid or be opened by resident upon request to view contents. All sharps/needles must be put into containers at home. No loose or bagged sharps/needles will be accepted. The Environmental Health Division will also provide a free 1-quart or 1-gallon sharps container to residents who administer home-injections, while supplies last. When the sharps/needles container is full, the resident should bring the container back for proper disposal.
