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 several cities and towns.

The New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services has issued the following guidelines for household-generated sharps: Household generated sharps may be disposed of with household trash, provided: 1. Sharps are enclosed inside a rigid, puncture-resistant container, such as a plastic bleach or laundry detergent bottle; 2. The screw-top of the container is securely taped closed with heavy-duty tape such as duct tape; 3. The container is labeled “Medical Sharps Container — Not for Recycling.” Printable labels are available on the DES website: Click Here To Open.
