Safe Sharps Disposal

The Recycle Depot will accept sharps under the following conditions ONLY:

  • The sharps must be in a closed medical waste box or thick plastic container such as a detergent bottle or coffee container. No milk jugs or pop bottles containing sharps will be accepted for disposal.
  • The container must contain only sharps–no pills, batteries, razors, or other objects. 
  • The Depot accepts only non-narcotic medicines and sharps. Any controlled substance may be dropped off at the Marshall County Jail or during a special collection (such as the annual Senior Expo event).
