Washington residents – except for residents of Seattle and Snohomish Counties – may dispose of used household sharps in their regular household trash.
- If you live in Seattle or Snohomish Counties, use the ZIP Code locator to find a drop off site for your sealed container.
- If there is no program near you, contact your local health department or solid waste department for direction.
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.
