These can't go in the garbage; they can injury people.
To dispose of syringes, needles, and lancets (also called “sharps”), you must put them in a rigid and sealable container like a 2-liter plastic soda bottle. Make sure the lid fits tightly and tape it shut. Label the container: "SHARPS, DO NOT RECYCLE." Then bring to a designated disposal box:
  • Intersection of Airport Way South and South Holgate Street
  • Intersection of 27th Avenue South and Cheasty Boulevard South (center median)
  • Fremont Canal Park,
    199 North Canal St, Seattle, WA 98103
  • Freeway Park,
    700 Seneca St, Seattle, WA 98101
  • Mineral Springs Park,
    1500 North 105th St, Seattle, WA 98133
  • Roxhill Park,
    2850 SW Roxbury St, Seattle, WA 98126
  • North or south transfer stations
If you find a syringe on public property, report it as illegal dumping.
