I have two containers of used sharps that I need to safely dispose somewhere. I've asked at pharmacies, no luck there. Anybody out there know where I can get this done?

From the COCS website:

Quote:

Medical sharps pose a SEVERE HEALTH RISK to collection and processing crews if not disposed of properly. Medical sharps must be contained in an empty sharps container, coffee can, or laundry detergent bottle, and the container must be taped shut. This can then be disposed of in your regular garbage container, not for bulky collection. Do not place sharps directly into a garbage bag or container.

I could be wrong but I believe this is legal (maybe not for human used needle waste).
Pour it into a five gallon bucket or buckets and encase in cement and dispose. This is what some animal shelters do. A little bit of effort, but might be easier than finding somewhere to take it.

We use Stericycle mail back program. The 3 gallon containers last us a long time and cost $80 each.
