Medical sharps are objects, such as syringes, needles and
lancets that are used for insulin intake, blood samples and for
other medical purposes. Improper disposal of sharps can
pose a serious health and safety hazard. Medical sharps
should be placed in a thick plastic or metal container with a
tight fitting lid such as a bleach or liquid detergent bottle.
Once full, secure the lid with heavy-duty tape and write the
words "Not Recyclable" on the container with a black, permanent
marker. After following these steps, you can place the
container in your regular black trash barrel.

plants and septic tanks into surface waters, soils, and the
