Shaving razors and razor blades

How to dispose of shaving razors and blades

Put properly packaged razors and razor blades (including plastic and metal handles) in your black cart as garbage. This is for the safety of your collector and landfill staff.

Special instructions

  • Package unusable or broken razors safely by putting the pieces into a puncture-resistant, non-breakable, sealed container (e.g. plastic bleach bottle, laundry detergent bottle, plastic pail with lid).
  • Or wrap the razor pieces in two layers of paper, put in a bag and tie closed.
  • Label as "sharps" with a permanent marker and place in your black cart as garbage.
