Sharps or syringes are not considered household hazardous waste and should be disposed of with regular trash pick up. Sharps should be placed in a puncture-resistant hard plastic or metal container. Container should be sealed and placed in a securely fastened opaque trash bag. It is also recommended to disinfect sharps with a solution of one teaspoon of bleach in a half gallon of water. Please do not recycle sharps. See the Disposal Tips brochure
for more information.
If you would prefer to mail sharps to a processor rather than disposing of them in the trash, most local drug stores sell mail back sharps boxes.
