​Dispose of it safely

Properly package needles by putting them into a puncture-resistant, non-breakable, sealed container (i.e. plastic bleach bottle, milk container or pop bottle) and labelling as "sharps" with a permanent marker. Properly packaged needles can be placed in your black cart.
 
Please do not use cardboard boxes for packaging as they can break open or rip.
