SHARPS DISPOSAL - Dodge County Transfer Station accepts sharps/syringes from residents at no charge.

  • All sharps must be in a leak-proof, puncture-proof sealed container such as a laundry detergent bottle or sharps container.
  • Bring them to the Dodge County Recycling Center Building and put the container in the large sharps gondola.

They are picked up by Mayo Clinic and disposed of in their medical incinerator. PLEASE do not put loose sharps in the drop box recycling bins or in the garbage as this is a health hazard for everyone who handles your waste.
