Home Generated Medical Waste Program

Type of Waste Accepted
The Middletown Township Health Department will accept home generated syringes and needles used in the administration of injectable medications from Township residents (proof of residency is required).

How to Dispose of Waste
All waste must be properly packaged in one of the following manners:
  • Placed in a properly labeled sharps container (needles do not need to be clipped)
  • Placed in a rigid plastic container with a screw top, such as a 2 liter soda bottle or laundry detergent bottle. Secure the screw top and label, "Warning-needles"
After the waste has been properly packaged, contact the Middletown Township Health Department to make an appointment to bring it to our office. Due to medical waste tracking regulations, persons showing up without an appointment may not have their waste accepted.
