Over the Counter Medications
Liquid Medications (small amounts in original, non-leaking containers)
Unused Drug Injection Cartridges (e.g. unused EpiPens and Insulin Pens)
Cannot Be Accepted:
Needles, Syringes and other Sharps
Medical Tools and Supplies
Bloody or Infectious Waste
Personal Care Products
Medication Wastes Generated by Health Care Facilities
Household Needles And Sharps / From Summit County Public Health
Purchase a commercially available sharps container from a pharmacy or other source, or use a strong plastic or metal container with a screw-on or tightly secured lid to prevent accidental contact with the waste.
Containers like empty bleach bottles, liquid detergent bottles and heavy plastic jugs are strong enough to prevent the sharps from poking through the container and have lids that can be securely fastened.
A coffee can may also be used as long as the lid is sealed with strong tape once the container is full.
Plastic milk containers are a poor choice because they are generally made of thin plastic that can easily be punctured by a needle or lancet.
Glass should never be used as a sharps container because the glass can break and make the hazard worse.
Containers of sharps should be clearly labeled as "Sharps" or "Biohazard Waste"
Once filled, the container should be firmly sealed to prevent accidental tampering.
Store the sealed sharps container away from children and pets.
Drop off container at the Dillon Police Department for proper disposal.
Note: Never put a container of sharps in with your recyclables.
Sharps are not recyclable and not only can they pose an infection risk to workers at the recycling facility, they can render the whole batch of recyclables unusable.
Used needles and other sharps should never be placed loosely in your trash or flushed down the toilet.
