Notes: Hours: Monday-Friday, 8:30am-3:30pm.
The Brown County Health Department is giving out sharps containers that residents can use to safely dispose of needles, syringes and lancets. Once the container is full, it can be returned to the Brown County Health Department for free disposal.
The Health Department will only collect and dispose of FDA-cleared sharps containers. Alternative sharps containers, such as laundry detergent bottles or coffee cans, will not be accepted. Sharps containers are for sharps only. No other waste is to be placed in the container. For more information, call the Health Department and ask for the nursing division.
