sharps

Teton County Public Health and Teton County Integrated Solid Waste & Recycling are now providing a new sharps disposal program for area residents. This new service will allow private individuals to dispose of their used medical needles and syringes in a safe and environmentally appropriate way.  Waste Disposal Chief Heather Overholser explains that while disposing of household quantities of sharps in the regular trash is not illegal, sharps in the trash pose a health and safety risk to sanitation personnel during collection, on the floor of the transfer station or at the landfill.  The sharps receptacle is located at the Teton County Public Health office on Pearl Street.  Residents should place the used sharps in plastic containers no larger than two quarts prior to depositing them in the disposal container.
