Services for the Community

Sharps Disposal

Used needles and syringes can be a health risk unless they are stored in a puncture-resistant container before disposal. Bottles made of heavy plastic with screw-on caps, such as detergent or fabric softener bottles, are best because they are strong and have spouts that make it harder for syringes to spill out. To avoid unnecessary needle sticks, place the following items into a closed plastic container for disposal:

  • Lancets
  • Needles
  • Razor blades
  • Syringes
  • Any other sharp object that could cut someone

Fill these containers until they are no more than two-thirds full. All bags, bottles and cans with medical waste should be closed securely and put out with regular trash. Do not recycle these items.

Community Clean-Ups

Call 410-887-2437 to arrange a community clean-up in your area to safely remove broken glass, needles, syringes and other trash from public areas.
