Will my local pharmacy take my full Sharps container?

Unless otherwise mandated, retail and mail-order pharmacies do not take back full Sharps containers for disposal. These facilities are required by state law to pay for their medical waste disposal and usually cannot take containers from the public.

Some retail pharmacies provide Sharps disposal mail-back kits, which include a Sharps container, return shipping box and prepaid mailing label. Ask your pharmacist if this service is available.

These facilities are typically required by state medical waste laws to pay for their own medical waste disposal and usually do not have the resources to take containers from the public.

Do Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) facilities and collection events accept Sharps for safe disposal?

Some areas have HHW facilities and collection events that accept home-generated medical Sharps. Check with your city or county solid waste department to find out if these facilities or collection events are available in your area and inquire if they accept Sharps.

    Sturdy and strong

    By on

    It's a good sharps container. Don't let anyone close the little window on top before you're done or you will have to break it to get it open. Impossible to pry the lid off of the top. I think that's probably an indication that is is well made - you don't want people breaking into a sharps container after all! It would be better if there was a warning on the top not to close the window until you're done. Would be helpful for knuckleheads like me.

    Perfect Needle Container

    By on

    Purchased this needle container for all my boy's needles that we will be going through during his treatment. Very easy to assemble, and store. There is a sliding door that will lock once the container is filled. Definitely recommend.

    Medical Waste Conquered

    By on

    We have been giving our cat fluids for his CRF for several months and not knowing what exactly to do with that bag of used needles we've accumulated. This container has made things so much easier, offering one safe place to deposit those sharp needles in that can be disposed of in the proper manner. I checked with our refuse people and learned that this labeled container can be picked up with our trash for disposal when it is full, no special trips anywhere to get rid of it. The size is great because it will hold a lot of our needle waste. Great price, too, compared to what I found at our local pharmacies.

    Love the container but the lid was locked as if ready for disposal. Had to force it open.

    Sturdy and Safe

    This sharps collector is perfect for my cats insulin syringes. I have also disposed of other sharps in this container for example blades for shop tools. It is incredibly sturdy, easy to store, easy to use and locks securely once full. I highly recommend this container.
