Due to the pandemic, disposal sites may be temporarily closed or altered their hours. We recommend calling or visiting the program website.
Sharps that retract after use, or are very small, should be disposed of like all other sharps.
If you would like to bring your sealed container to a community sharps disposal program, there are drop-off locations in Athens-Clarke County and Floyd County.

The Georgia Department of Natural Resources does not provide written recommendations for disposing of home-generated sharps. However, individuals are responsible for ensuring that their used sharps are stored in a way that does not cause a health hazard.
