Medical Waste Disposal - Home
Certain medical conditions require the use of hypodermic needles, syringes, lancets and scalpel blades.
Here are some general rules for the disposal of home medical waste:
Place all items with sharp edges in a strong plastic container with a lid (such as a laundry detergent bottle) or a coffee can with a lid. Write "NOT RECYCLABLE" on the container to make sure it does not accidentally get put into your recycling bin.
When the container is about 3/4 full, put the lid on and seal it tightly with strong tape. This container can then be placed in your garbage bin for pick up - DO NOT place in your recycling bin.
