Proper Disposal of Used Pet Syringes and Needles

By April 25, 2013Uncategorized

Have you ever wondered what to do with the used syringes or needles from your pets insulin or fluids?  If you were thinking you should not just throw them away in the trash you were right.  Each town in Massachusetts has a specific place you can take them to.  For example here in Watertown you take them to the Administration Building for the Health and Fire Department at 149 Main Street.  You do need to call ahead to (617) 972-6446 to find out the drop off schedule and if they have any restrictions.  That is true of any of the needle disposal sites.  To access the PDF list of all the disposal sites here in Massachusetts please click on the link below.
