[ARCHIVED] New Disposal Locations for Medical Needles/Sharps


RecycleMore has added 8 new collection sites for home-generated medical needles/sharps.

Used needles and other sharps are dangerous to people and pets if not disposed of safely. Sharps should never be placed in trash cans or recycling bins, and never flushed down the toilet: this puts workers, family members, and children at risk.

To help keep the community safe, new sharps collection kiosks are located at the following sites:

1) *San Pablo Police Station - 13880 San Pablo Avenue, San Pablo, CA 94806

2) City of Richmond locations
---Senior Center at 2525 MacDonald Avenue, 94804
---Annex Senior Center at 5801 Huntington Avenue, 94804
---*Police Station at 1701 Regatta Blvd, 94804
---Shields-Reid Community Center – 1410 Kelsey, 94801

3) *West County Wastewater District Office - 2910 Hilltop Drive, Richmond, CA 94806

4) *Pinole Police Station - 880 Tennent Avenue, Pinole, CA 94564
