Home-generated sharps disposal regulations have changed in California.
Under California Senate Bill 212, pharmacies are required to dispense all sharps with:
- a sharps waste container and
- mail-back materials for proper medical waste disposal
Every day, 13+ million in-home injection users in the U.S. generate used sharps—adding up to 7.8 billion sharps that need to be properly disposed of every year.
