Notes: The Lexington Board of Health and Public Health Division in collaboration with the Lexington Department of Public Works, periodically offers a medical waste drop off service at no cost to residents.
Sharps must be in red medical waste container, detergent bottle, coffee can or similar sturdy puncture proof container. Proof of residency required. Contact Lexington Board of Health or visit website for more information on medical waste collection events.
It is against the law in the state of Massachusetts to dispose of sharps in the household trash.
