How do I dispose of needles and syringes?
  • Place needles and syringes in a hard plastic (ex: laundry detergent bottles) or metal container with a tightly secured lid. (The container should be labeled “Syringes,” “Sharps,” or “Needles.”)
  • Keep the container out of the reach of children and pets.
  • When the container is full, seal and reinforce its lid with heavy-duty tape.
  • Dispose of the sealed container in the household trash. Learn more.
