There is a state-wide ban on the disposal of needles, syringes, and lancets (collectively known as "sharps") in household trash. Residents can no longer dispose of these items in that manner.
Sharps must be in a tightly sealed puncture-proof container. Individual or loose sharps will not be accepted. The Health Department reserves the right to refuse containers that are not deemed safe.
You must be a Shrewsbury resident. This program is not for businesses.

Non-residents should reach out to the Health Department within their own community for safe disposal options.
