SHARPS Collection Program
Safe Handling of All Residentially Produced Sharps (SHARPS)
What are SHARPS?
“SHARPS” are needles, syringes and lancets used by residents for self-medication.
Now there is a safe way for residents of Rockland County to dispose of “SHARPS.” Any resident who uses “SHARPS” in the home can participate in the program.
This includes residents with diabetes or other medical conditions, such as cancer or allergies that require medication by injection.
Disposing of SHARPS
Place “SHARPS,” needles, syringes and lancets into an “Approved SHARPS” Container” which may be obtained from a surgical supply house or pharmacy.
This program is only open to residents of Rockland County. Sharps will not be accepted from private physician’s offices or healthcare agencies.
