Handling sharps in Maryland. Need help in Maryland with Sharps or needle waste management? Cotact us today for the most compliant and afforble Maryland Sharps disposal.

Do-

• Immediately place used needles and other sharps in a sharps disposal container to reduce the risk of needle-sticks, cuts, or punctures from loose sharps.

 • Use an FDA-cleared sharps disposal container, if possible. If an FDA-cleared container isn’t available, some organizations and community guidelines recommend using a heavy-duty plastic household container (i.e. laundry detergent container) as an alternative.

• Make sure that if a household disposal container is used, it has the basic features of a good disposal container. (See box at right for more info.)

• Be prepared — carry a portable sharps disposal container for travel.

• Follow your community guidelines for getting rid of your sharps disposal container.

• Call your local trash or public health department (listed in the county and city government section of your phone book) to find out about sharps disposal programs in your area.

• Ask your health care provider, veterinarian, local hospital or pharmacist o where and how you can obtain an FDA-cleared sharps disposal container, o if they can dispose of your used needles and other sharps, or o if they know of safe disposal programs near you.

• Keep all needles and other sharps and sharps disposal containers out of reach of children and pets.

 

Don’t -

• Throw needles and other sharps into the trash.

• Flush needles and other sharps down the toilet.

• Put needles and other sharps in your recycling bin — they are not recyclable.

• Try to remove, bend, break, or recap needles used by another person. This can lead to accidental needle sticks, which may cause serious infections.

• Attempt to remove the needle without a needle clipper device because the needles could fall, fly off, or get lost and injure someone.
