SHARPS Disposal Program
What should you do with your used syringes/needles or lancets?
Citrus County Health Department has a USED SHARPS DEPOSITORY PROGRAM for all residents and visitors. This program is designed to help individuals safely dispose of their used syringes, needles, and lancets. This helps to prevent others from accidental needle stick injuries and possible exposure to infections. The program also helps prevent clogging of sewage lines and decrease the use of the landfill. There is no charge for the disposal.
How can you participate:

  • Get an approved SHARPS container, for a small fee, from your pharmacy or at one of the health department clinics.

  • Place all your used SHARPS into the container. Store it out of reach of children.

  • When the container is filled, snap the lid shut--it will then be locked.

  • Return the locked container to any Citrus County Health Department clinic or to the Citrus County Landfill. Give it to an employee; do not leave the container unattended.

  • The health department will make sure that the container is disposed of through safe and approved methods.

Questions Call any health department clinic site.

Our hours of operation are Monday through Friday 8:00 am to 12: noon and 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm. To find out more information contact us at 352-249-9258 option 1
