HPSA is proud to introduce New Sharps Disposal containers available in ON and PEI ONLY.

Safely dispose of your used sharps devices by following these steps: 

1-Recap needle and place into the approved sharp container offered free of charge at any participating pharmacy

2-Once the sharp waste has reached the designated fill line, snap lid closed by securing the strip.

3-To permanently close the sharps container, insert the tab into the opening to secure the lid down. 

4-Return full container to a participating pharmacy.

Always use an approved sharps container when disposing of used sharps to help reduce the risk of needlestick injuries

Public or private care facilities/institutions, such as private seniors' residences, must provide, at their own expense, safe disposal sharps containers to their residents.

HPSA's Sharp Containers are NOT approved for commercial/business or institutional waste disposal. Containers are only available to members of the public who live in a residential sector. (Domestic use ONLY.)
