If you have a medical condition, such as diabetes or allergies that require self-injections or blood testing at home, you can safely dispose of your needles, syringes, or lancets at Eastern Long Island Hospital.
Sharps – needles, syringes, or lancets – should be placed in a plastic, puncture-proof container with a tight fitting lid and clearly labeled "CONTAINS SHARPS".
Sharps can be dropped off any Tuesday between 10 am and 12 noon. When you arrive at the front entrance, ask to be directed to the Support Services office. The reception desk will call 477-5201 to contact a designated employee to assist with proper disposal and documentation.
