When it comes to getting rid of your sealed container of used sharps, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources has issued the following guidelines for disposal.
Sharps that retract after use, or are very small, should be disposed of like all other sharps.
Most counties in Wisconsin have disposal programs. Call the program to confirm if there are any container requirements, disposal fees or residency restrictions. Click here for information on pharmaceutical company takeback programs.

The state of Wisconsin issued a statute in 1992 which mandates that all generators of medical waste manage their sharps safely and separately from other wastes. State medical waste rules adopted in 1994 as NR 526.09 (5) contain provisions to implement a statewide sharps collection program. The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources maintains a list of registered sharps collection stations on its website.
