Special instructions

  • Package broken glass and sharp items safely by putting the pieces into a puncture-resistant, non-breakable container (e.g. plastic tub, plastic pail, laundry detergent container, etc.)
  • Or wrap in two layers of paper and place in a tied bag.
  • Labels as 'sharps' with a permanent marker and place in your black cart.
