South Milwaukee Health Department Sharps Disposal Program

March 15, 2014

It is the Law in Wisconsin that you CANNOT put sharps, such as needles and lancets, in the trash or recycle bins. Used sharps can stick waste disposal workers. If trash containers are blown over and bags are broken apart, other adults, children, and even pets are at risk for needle stick injuries when sharps are disposed of improperly.

Starting January 1, 2014 for South Milwaukee residents, the Health Department will be a Sharps Disposal Site.

Used needles, syringes, and lancets for blood testing in an approved red biohazard sharps container are accepted for disposal. However, there is a charge for cost of disposal. Current Disposal charges are $5.00/ 1.5 qt and $7.00/ 2 gal.

Red biohazard sharps containers are available for purchase at the Health Department. Currently- $2.75/ 1.5 qt. and $5.00/ 2 gal.

If you have any questions about this program, please contact us at 414-768-8055.
