A SAFE SOLUTION FOR RESIDENTIAL SHARPS WASTE
Now all residential sharps users may safely dispose of their needles, syringes or lancets in one of the four kiosks in the Kern River Valley. The kiosks are easy to use and will accept secure sharps containers up to 2 quarts in size.
Please DO NOT deposit loose sharps waste inside the containers as this will pose a health risk to the medical waste service personnel. You can purchase approved sharps containers for $3.50 each plus tax or 3 for $9.00 plus tax at Thomas Refuse Service
NO Commercial sharps waste permitted. If doctor's offices or medical facilities are using the sharps kiosks, we will be forced to shut down our program. Please report any misuse of the sharps kiosks to 760-379-2618.
Look for the sharps kiosks located at Thomas Refuse Service, Isabella Supermarket, The Drug Store, and Mt. Mesa Market.
