Beginning September 1, 2008 (updated 7/1/2018), the California Medical Waste Management Act prohibits the disposal of home generated sharps in trash or recycling containers.
The Napa County Public Health Division is a no-cost collection location for sharps only:
- Sharps must be transported in an approved sharps container, which may be obtained from a physician or pharmacy, or Napa County Public Health
- Sharps transported in plastic bags or paper bags or other non-puncture resistant container will be refused
Napa County Public Health will accept properly packaged sharps:
2751 Napa Valley Corporate Drive
Building B, Napa
Monday through Friday: 1PM to 5PM
Recommended to call in advance
It is against the law to leave any material after hours.
