Syringe Disposal Program

The Syringe Disposal Program is a way to insure that there are no accidental sticks of people coming into contact with needles during collection and disposal.
Approved Sharps Container
The Hamilton County Health Department and the Hamilton County Household Hazardous Waste Center recommends using approved sharps containers for storage of used needles and syringes before their proper disposal.

For a small charge, Hamilton County residents may pick up a new sharps container at the Hamilton County Household Hazardous Waste Center.

Once the container is full, return it to the Hamilton County Household Hazardous Waste Center where it will be disposed of for free.

Hamilton County residents may also bring used syringes to the Hamilton County Household Hazardous Waste Center in approved sharps containers.
