Sharps are accepted at the Marathon County Solid Waste Department. Put them 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."
