Have you ever wondered what you should be doing with your used sharps? For household-generated sharps waste, Skagitonians have a few options!
The best way to dispose of sharps is by using a mail-order, FDA-cleared sharps container. When purchasing this type of container, people can mail back their full containers to the mail-order service that the container was purchased from.
If you cannot purchase an FDA-cleared mail-order sharps waste container in store or online, Skagitonians have another option for disposing of household generated sharps. For more information, check out our new blog post: https://skagitcounty.blog/?p=3337
