Needles cannot be tossed in the trash. Learn where to properly dispose of sharps containers in Jefferson County.

Proper sharps disposal is essential to prevent injuries and the spread of infections. Sharps, such as needles, syringes, and lancets, should be placed in puncture-resistant containers immediately after use. These containers should be sealed securely and labeled clearly to indicate they contain sharps. It's important to dispose of filled containers at designated collection sites or through approved disposal services to ensure safe handling and proper disposal according to regulations. This responsible disposal not only safeguards individuals from accidental needlesticks but also protects sanitation workers and the environment from potential harm. The Valle Ambulance District DOES NOT accept used sharps of any kind. Please visit one of the following community resources to properly dispose of sharps:
