Where can I properly dispose of Needles, Syringes and Lancets (“Sharps”) in Oxnard?
Improper disposal of used sharps (needles, syringes and lancets) can injure children, home health care providers, sanitation workers, and pets through accidental “sticks.”
Bring your used sharps to the following locations for proper, safe and convenient disposal. Each site offers FREE needles collection containers. Sharps will NOT be accepted at the collection facilities in liquid detergent bottles, bleach bottles, coffee cans, glass containers, milk jugs, or soda bottles for safety reasons.
