Notes: City residents can obtain a Sharps Disposal kit at participating CVS and Walgreens pharmacies. Each disposal kit includes a specially designed sharps container and a postage-prepaid shipping container. Used sharps are placed inside the container for safe storage. When full, the container is closed, bagged, and sealed inside its original packaging. All Mission Viejo residents can receive one free sharps container with postage and return box per year. Proof of residency required. Additional containers can be purchased for $5. For more information, contact Waste Management customer service at 949-642-1191 or visit your participating pharmacy.
It is against the law in the state of California to dispose of sharps in the household trash.
