Sharps Program

The "Sharps" program provides Pasco County Residents with a means to dispose of their "Sharps": needles, syringes, tubes and other sharps in a safe manner and prevent needles from entering the solid waste stream annually in our county. In the past, these needles clogged our sewer system, ended up at our recycling centers, and putting at risk garbage workers, not to mention they are a threat to public safety.

This program is very simple and the sponsoring hospitals and institutions are easily accessible. The program calls for the participant to go to one of the designated locations and obtain a red "Sharps" container. Once the container is filled, it is sealed and returned to the same location and exchanged for a new one.

Please see below to find a participation location near you. For additional information, contact our office at (813) 929-2755 ext. 6896.
