What should I do with household medical sharps?

Place needles, syringes, lancets and other sharp medical devices in a hard plastic container with a screw-on lid, such as a laundry detergent jug. When the container is full, secure the lid with heavy-duty tape. Place a “Household Infectious Waste” sticker over the lid. Bring your sealed container to the Carlton County Transfer Station on Highway 210. Stickers can be obtained from the cashier. For more information, contact us at 218-384-9174.
