Fauquier Hospital Hosts Sharps Collection October 11

Many people have medical conditions such as diabetes or allergies that require self-injections or blood testing at home. A free service of Fauquier Health, the community sharps disposal program helps residents of Fauquier County and surrounding areas safely dispose of used medical “sharps” such as needles, syringes and lancets, reducing risk to families and waste management and landfill staff.

Fauquier Health will hold a Sharps Collection Day on Saturday, October 11. Residents may drive by the Medical Office Building on Hospital Hill between 9 a.m. and 12 noon to dispose of sharps.

To help make this day a success, please remember:

  •  Return sharps in rigid plastic or metal containers; no soft-sided containers that sharps can penetrate.
  • No businesses or doctor’s offices, please.
  • No medications will be collected at this event.
