Medical Waste - Sharps at Home Disposal
Sharps Disposal

It is illegal to dispose of syringes (sharps) in the trash, recycling bins, or composting bins. All needles should be treated as if they carry a disease. That means that, if someone gets stuck with a needle, they could get infected with a disease that may be on the needle. Therefore, they would have to get extensive medical tests and worry about whether they have caught a harmful or deadly disease. You have the power to prevent a situation like this, simply by safely disposing of your used sharps. Do not place others at risk when safe alternatives are currently available.
