Keep sharps out of general trash

A recent incident at the Wilson Hall recycling compactor discovered medical sharps near the end of and falling out of the container. A reminder to all that sharps of any kind (including medical) are not allowed into regular trash or recycling receptacles. There is a great risk for injury or the spread of a communicable disease by someone being punctured by an incorrectly disposed sharp. Contact your personal medical provider for proper disposal of these, as Fermilab is not allowed to dispose of them if they are for personal use. Please be aware of what you are throwing away.
