Sharps Disposal

“Sharps” include needles, syringes and lancets used for checking blood glucose levels.

Karmanos Cancer Center is unable to accept used sharps, except those containing chemotherapy medication. However, we would like to offer some useful tips on how you can safely dispose of all other sharps.

  • Contact your local health department, county waste authority or check the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ), Medical Waste Regulatory Program’s website for a list of community service collections programs, by county at www.michigan.gov/deqmedwaste or call 1-517-241-1320.
  • Contract with a U.S. Postal Service approved mail-back service. These companies provide containers and directions on packaging your used sharps so they can be returned to the company through the U.S. mail. A list of these companies can be found by visiting www.safeneedledisposal.org or by calling 1-800-643-1643.
