Syringe Disposal

Improper disposal of home use syringes may cause unnecessary exposure to those handling waste, as well as the community at large. Even if a person never acquires an infectious disease from a needle stick, there is a tremendous amount of anxiety involved with such an incident. Also, it is a violation of State law to dispose of a syringe without properly destroying it first.

Bayshore Community Hospital (Beers Street, Holmdel) offers a free disposal program to area residents who use syringes at home for diabetes, etc. They will provide you with a syringe container to store your used syringes and will accept the container from you when full. (Please note that the hospital will only accept syringes in the proper container. Bags, plastic bottles, etc. are not acceptable.) To register for this program, please call the hospital at 732-739-5900 and ask for the syringe disposal program.
