Medical sharps, such as needles, syringes and lancets, pose an injury risk for anyone who comes into contact with these items. Large numbers of sharps are used at home, work and on the road. If sharps are put in the trash or recycling, or flushed down the toilet, they can injure sanitation workers or cause equipment problems. Therefore, it is important to properly package and dispose of all sharps.
Never put needles and other sharp medical items in the trash, recycling or medication collection drop boxes.
