    Safe Sharps Disposal 

    The Hendricks County Health Department offers a free Safe Sharps Disposal Program. The Health Department and Solid Waste Management District partner on this effort to safely collect used sharps and prevent the spread of communicable diseases, such as HIV and Hepatitis C, due to needle sticks. Hendricks County residents can come to the Health Department Nursing Clinic between 8:00 A.M. and 4:00 P.M., Monday through Friday, to pick up a free sharps container for their personal use. Full sharps containers can then be returned to the Health Department for disposal at no charge.
