Safe Disposal of needles, syringes, blades and lancets
From Whatcom County Health Department
Dispose of your self-treatment needles, syringes, blades and lancets in your household garbage. County Solid Waste rules permit this type of disposal when the sharps are properly packaged and labeled.
Label a plastic bottle with “DO NOT RECYCLE: CONTAINS USED SHARPS” with a permanent marker. Do not place the bottle in recycles. Place it in the garbage. No need to add anything to the bottle.
