Notes: At your request, your garbage hauler (member of the Mid-Valley Garbage and Recycling Association) will supply and deliver a red sharps container to your home for a fee. The container is a rigid, puncture-proof box made especially for this purpose. Once the container is full, simply contact your hauler again, and they will pick it up and deliver a new, empty container. Visit website for hauler contact information.
It is against the law in the state of Oregon to dispose of sharps in the household trash.
