Sharps Disposal

Wisconsin's sharps collection program is simple, flexible and voluntary and includes a variety of collection programs, from individual stations to large networks of stations. To protect waste handlers, the public and the environment, state law requires that discarded syringes, lancets and other sharps be kept separate from household garbage. Public education and low-cost, convenient sharps collection programs are the most effective ways to encourage proper disposal.
