Sharps Disposal

Residential Customers may dispose of Sharps at the Public Service Department building at 1411 1st Avenue. They should NOT be placed curbside with regular garbage.

Commercial (Business) customers should contact the South Central Iowa Solid Waste Agency at 641-828-8545 ext. 2 to discuss options for Sharps disposal.


All sharps must be in either a red sharps plastic container or a hard plastic detergent bottle with the cap screwed on and taped down. Sharps are no longer accepted in pop bottles, milk jugs, coffee cans, or any other non-detergent bottle. Please put your name and phone number on the container in case we need to contact you.

These guidelines ensure the safety of personnel handling the waste and are required by the Department of Transportation.


If you have questions please contact the Public Service Department at (641) 236-2632 or email.
