The safest way is through a program set up to dispose of these items. Contact your local Walgreen’s Drug Store to participate in their Needle Collection & Disposal System to properly dispose of used needles. At home, place the used needle in a sturdy plastic container such as a detergent bottle. Place the lid on the bottle, securely tape it closed, mark NEEDLES on all sides of the container and put in your trash. Keep the safety of the trash collectors when using this method and prepare the container with extra caution.
Residents can store these items at their homes until the next available event. Once these items leave your home they are considered hazardous and not accepted at any other time at The Authority. We have no way to store these items and it is considered illegal to do so. You may also choose to contact one of the vendors used at our events to collect the items from your home. Their contact information is available here.

In a state-wide effort to reduce single-use products and eliminate litter, New Jersey lawmakers have passed legislation banning single-use plastics, papers, and foam products. Effective November 4, 2021 plastic straws will be available “by request only.” The law enforces that all food service businesses shall only provide a single-use plastic straw upon request by the customer. Effective May 4, 2022, the ban on single-use carryout bags and polystyrene foam food service products will be implemented. The law prohibits all stores, food service businesses, and grocery stores from selling or providing their customers with single-use plastic carryout bags and prohibits polystyrene foam food service products from being sold or provided to customers.
