Safe Storage and Disposal of Sharp Objects

Sharp Object Disposal

For safe disposal of sharp objects: razor blades, small knife blades, nails, screws, staples, thumb tacks, or any other small object that pose an easy risk for injury, discard by using a plastic container with a sealed lid to avoid harm. Your recycle pickup company will thank you, and you lessen the chance of these dangerous objects scattering where the shouldn’t be.

Obtaining a suitable plastic container with a sealed lid can come in several forms as a proper recycling canister. Many packaged foods and cleaning supplies: ice cream, disinfectant wipes, jam, ketchup, etc. have perfect containers to collect the sharp objects. Other options include small mixing containers with snap-on lids (example) for painting or solvents; which are readily available and cheap to purchase at many local hardware stores.

CAUTION: RISK OF INJURY – Sharp objects can cause cuts or punctures to skin.
