Used hypodermic needles, syringes and lancets are dangerous because they can injure people and spread germs and diseases. Victims of sharps-related injuries face the cost of post-injury testing, disease prevention measures, and counseling, even if no infection or disease was spread.

Safely dispose of sharps and always use an approved or alternative sharps container. If you do not have a specific sharps container, sharps can be safely stored and transported in a heavy-duty empty plastic bottle or jug with a screw top lid (e.g. empty laundry detergent bottle).

Sharps can be dropped off for free at all of the Clark County Transfer Stations during all hours. The sharps disposal bins are accessible for free drop off during transfer station business hours.

Find more information by using the Recycling A-Z Directory or on the RecycleRight App (available on Apple and Android devices).
