Home Generated Medical Waste Program

Type of Waste Accepted


The Middletown Township Health Department will accept home generated syringes and needles only, used in the administration of injectable medications from Township residents (proof of residency is required). All non-liquid medication can be disposed of at Town Hall in the medicine drop-off box located by the Court entrance.

How to Dispose of Waste


All waste must be properly packaged in the following manner:
  • Placed in a properly labeled sharps container (needles do not need to be clipped)
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.
