The Costa Mesa Sanitary District (CMSD) sponsors sharps disposal drop boxes at the locations listed below. Sharps include needles, syringes, and lancets. It is no longer necessary to use a purpose made sharps container. Sharps can now be accepted in rigid, sealed containers such as thick plastic laundry detergent, bleach, or coffee containers.
Residents can pick up a FREE sharps container at the District's headquarters or at the pharmacies listed below. Containers are available while supplies last.
Sharps can be collected curbside through the Door-to-Door Household Hazardous Waste Collection Program.
Contact CR&R at (949) 646-4617 to schedule a pickup.
