Sharps and Medication Disposal
If you are utilizing Sharps at home, please make sure you are properly disposing of them and never simply throwing them away in the trash. We know sometimes it can be tough to find places that accept Sharps but did you know all Skilled Nursing Facilities and Hospitals accept Sharps as long as they are in a proper Sharps Container? Safe disposal of sharps is critically important to optimize health, safety and protection of the environment. Please note, these facilities do not offer needle exchange, they are solely a Sharps drop off location. For up to date information on where and when you can drop off your Sharps please reference here.
Safe medication drop off is also critical to the safety and health of our communities. If you have a medicine cabinet filled with pills no longer being used, please visit the Warren County Sherriff's office MedReturn Box.
