Sharps Disposal

The Center Fire Station (21 Town Hall Ave) takes househould medical sharps (e.g. medical syringes) for disposal. The sharps must be placed in a sharps container or a rigid, leak-proof, shatter-proof and puncture-resistant container (like a thick plastic laundry detergent bottle). Containers may only contain sharps. There is a fee per container, which covers the cost of disposal. 

The current fee schedule is as follows:

One (1) Quart & Under: $5.00

One (1) Gallon: $8.00

Two (2) Gallon: $15.00

We accept cash and check payments (checks made payable to the "Town of Tewksbury") and accept disposals during our business hours.
