Put used hypodermic needles, lancets and other blood contaminated sharps in heavy plastic detergent bottles with screw on lids. Label clearly "Sharps, Don't Recycle" when you start each new container. Duct tape the lid shut and set out with the regular trash when full. NEVER set out loose needles.

Bandages and medical items with body fluids need to be fully absorbed before discarding.

Many private companies will provide containers you can mail back after you fill with sharps. The Tippecanoe County Health Department will accept used needles as long as they are in a sharps container. See below.
