Sharps can be disposed at a number of locations in Marathon County. Basic guidance is to put sharps in a commercial sharps disposal container on sale at most pharmacies or in a heavy plastic detergent or bleach bottle with a screw-on cap for sealing tightly. No milk jugs or other thin plastic. Do not separate the needle from the syringe. Label the container with “biohazard,” “infectious waste,” or “sharps." For more details about packaging and disposal refer to the DNR guidance regarding managing household medical sharps.
