[ARCHIVED] Low-Cost Sharps Containers Available at Health Department

Posted 3/23/09

Approved "Sharps" containers are available for purchase at the Amherst Health Department during regular office hours, Monday-Friday, 8:30am-4:30pm.

1-quart containers are $2.00, and 5-quart containers are $10.00. The price includes disposal, and each container can be returned to the Health Department or Transfer Station with no additional fee.

As of July, 2010, a new law will be enacted making it illegal to dispose of needles and other sharps in household trash. Now is a good time to create a new habit and do the right thing!
