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