People in New York may dispose of used household sharps in the household trash. All hospitals and nursing homes in New York State are mandated by law to accept home-generated sharps as a free, community service through their sharps collection programs. Locate a hospital or nursing home in your region or county.
Place them in a strong, plastic container, like a laundry detergent or bleach bottle.
When the container is 75% full, seal it tightly with duct tape and label it “DO NOT RECYCLE.”
Place the container in the regular household trash.
