Install a temper-proof sharps collection drop box (kiosk) for direct deposit of sharps (in containers) by consumers.
A CBO interested in participating as a safe sharps collection site by installing a kiosk must register with the NYSDOH as a collection site, comply with NYSDEC regulated medical waste regulations, and meet other requirements.
The New York State Department of Health can provide a kiosk and inserts for CBOs that meet the requirements. For more details on this topic click here.
