DISPOSAL OF USED NEEDLES

PLEASANTVIEW FIRE PROTECTION DISTRICT DOES

NOT ACCEPT USED NEEDLES FOR DISPOSAL

The disposal options for used needles are a little limited.  The nearest disposal site is the Naperville Hazardous waste site.  (156 Fort Hill Drive Naperville-Saturday & Sunday 9:00am-2:00pm)  The household hazardous waste day sites also typically accepts properly contained needles.  Below are some options residents may use to dispose of needles.

  • Deliver the needles to an approved hazardous waste collection site (www.pa.state.il.us)

  • Check with the needle supplier to see if they have a return or exchange program.

  • Purchase a commercial disposal product

  • (see www.safeneedlesdisposal.org)

  • Pack needles in a hard (plastic or metal) container, seal well with tape and dispose in the standard garbage collection (least desirable method)
