Notes: Republic Services and the City of Placentia has a new program to provide service for sharps items for a nominal fee that is safe, convenient, and confidential. Sharps can now be mailed to a safe disposal location using Republic Services Medical Mail Back Kit. Each kit includes: a government approved plastic container specifically designed for sharps waste, postage pre-paid mail back shipping box, pre-addressed shipping labels and pre-paid disposal. To obtain a sharps mail back kit and for additional information, please contact Republic Services at 855-737-7871 or visit www.republicservices.com.
It is against the law in the state of California to dispose of sharps in the household trash.
