Sharps Disposal

The Center Fire Station takes household medical sharps (e.g. medical syringes) for disposal. The sharps must be placed in a sharps container or a rigid, leak-proof, shatter-proof, and puncture-resistant container (like a thick plastic laundry detergent bottle). Containers may only contain sharps. There is a fee per container, which covers the cost of disposal. 

The current fee schedule is as follows:

One Quart & Under: $5

One Gallon: $10

Two Gallon: $15

We accept cash and check payments (checks made payable to the "Town of Tewksbury") and accept disposals during our business hours.
