"Sharps" is the name used to describe needles, syringes, and finger-prick lancets used outside the setting of hospitals and doctor's offices. For more information please call 765-472-7224.
Sharps must be packaged in a strong, sealed container before taking them for disposal. For more information please call 765-472-7224.
Seal the lid of your container when it is about 3/4 full and take it to one of the drop offs.
No! Sharps are not recyclable and should not be placed in a recycling bin. For more information please call 765-472-7224.
To properly prepare sharps for disposal:
-Use a container that is leak proof, shatterproof, and puncture resistant with a screw top. Good choices are durable plastic bottles such as empty detergent bottles. Bad choices are glass, aluminum, cardboard, or metal coffee cans with flimsy lids.
-Place sharps in the container immediately after using.
-Do not recap, bend, or break needles or lancets.
-Secure the screw top on the container and label it "SHARPS, Dispose of Properly" with a waterproof marker on the container or on masking tape over the container.
-An authorized medical waste company will dispose of your sharps in accordance with all applicable local, state, and federal regulations.
-Instead of making a sharps container, you may purchase one from your local pharmacy. You should also check with your health insurance provider to see if they will pay for or provide a sharps disposal container.
