The Sharps Disposal Program is made possible with support from Le Sueur County Environmental Services, Le Sueur County Public Health, and Tri County Solid Waste.
It is important to manage and dispose of needles, lancets, and syringes (sharps) safely to prevent injury and disease transmission from needle-sticks. Never leave needles or syringes on streets, in parks, or anywhere else where someone could get injured.
