Household Sharps – Dispose of Them Safely
Millions of individuals with serious health conditions manage their care at home. For example people with diabetes may use syringes and needles to inject their own insulin, and lancets to test their blood sugars every day.
These syringes, needles and lancets are called "household sharps." Household sharps need to be properly contained and discarded to protect trash handlers and waste treatment workers from disease or injury. Careful disposal also prevents re-use of syringes that can transmit the immunodeficiency virus (HIV), or hepatitis B or hepatitis C.
The State of Wisconsin requires that discarded syringes, lancets and other sharps be kept separate from household garbage. The best way to dispose of these sharps is to put them in a "sharps" container and take them to a sharps collection station.
It’s easy to dispose of "household sharps".
First: Put used sharps in a rigid, plastic container. A commercially manufactured sharps container is best. These are available at the Calumet County Health Department. If you don’t have a manufactured sharps container, use a rigid, plastic container. A heavy plastic detergent or bleach bottle with a screw top is acceptable. Unacceptable containers include coffee cans (their lids are too easily punctured), plastic milk jugs, plastic bags, pop cans or soda bottles. These containers should have a bio-hazardous label on them and be sealed tightly. (The labels are available at the Calumet County Health Department.)
Then: Bring your three-quarters full container to the Calumet County Health Department. The sharps containers are available from the Health Department for use by county residents. The Health Department is also a registered sharps collection station. When you bring your full sharps container to the Health Department, a new empty container will be provided to you. A citizen can stop by the health department, between the hours of 8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., to pick up or drop off a sharps container. Businesses and professionals are regulated under state and federal biomedical waste laws and cannot participate in this program.
If you have questions, call the Calumet County Health Department at 849-1432.
