Needles and Syringes

If you are working in a research facility, there should be specific containers labeled for the disposal of sharps. Please contact your laboratory safety contact if you are unsure about where to locate these containers. Reference the Sharps Fact Sheet for questions about handling and disposal.

If you find sharps on campus and are unsure what to do with them, please contact Facilities Services at (510) 642-1032 to request pickup.

Note: Do not touch needles are sharps if you are unsure of what may be on them.
