Used needles and other sharps are dangerous if they are not disposed of safely. They can hurt people and spread infections that cause serious health conditions.
Put all needles and other sharps in a sharps disposal container right after using them. This reduces the risk of needle-sticks, cuts, or punctures.
For more information go to the DNR household waste website.
You can dispose of used syringes and get new syringes at our offices.
