The Lowell Health Department and the City of Lowell provide various ways to properly dispose of sharps, including needles, lancets, EpiPens, and syringes. Sharps should never be thrown loosely into the trash, recycling or toilet. Sharps that retract after use, or are very small, should be disposed of like all other sharps. Help protect the people we love and the environment we live in by disposing of your sharps properly.
