Sharps Disposal

The Sioux Falls Public Works, Environmental Division designed the Sharps Disposal Program to protect area residents, and employees who handle refuse and recycling.

There are free Sharps Drop-off locations at three area pharmacies. Sharps include needles, syringes and lancets that individuals use at home. Residents who live in Minnehaha, Lake, Lincoln, McCook and Turner counties who use sharps may pickup a sharps disposal container at any Lewis Drug, Hy-Vee or Walgreen pharmacies. Once the container is full, return it to the originating pharmacy and receive a new sharps disposal container.
