SHARPS Collection

No future dates have been scheduled.

What are SHARPS? "SHARPS" are needles, syringes, and lancets used by residents for self medication. Now there is a safe way for residents of Rockland County to dispose of "SHARPS." Any resident who uses "SHARPS" in the home can participate in the program. This includes residents with diabetes or other medical conditions, such as cancer or allergies that require medication by injection.
A participating health care facility will accept and dispose of "SHARPS" on the first Tuesday of the month* (unless otherwise noted) between the hours of 10 a.m. to 12 noon and 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Please see schedule of specific dates. No unscheduled drop-off of "SHARPS" will be accepted. By scheduling drop offs, the participating facility will have staff available to receive the "SHARPS" containers. Do not dispose of "SHARPS" in your town recycling program! Dispose of "SHARPS" only at designated facilities.

Please see our cancellations page for up to date information on meeting, event, class and exam cancellations and/or postponements.
