Needle Collection Service

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.
