Shore Medical Center will accept used and unused needles from the community. This complementary service allows you to dispose of your used needles safely and without incident to a member of our trained staff.
To be turned in, needles must be placed in a closed container. We will then provide you with a new Stericycle needle containment system.
Any member of the community wishing to turn in used needles may bring them to the front desk from 8 am to 4 pm Monday through Friday and ask for the Environmental Services Department. An Environmental Services employee will meet you in the Surgical Pavilion lobby to exchange containers.
