Sharps & Needles

Medical needles are strictly prohibited from regular waste disposal. Used needles can be kept in a sealed coffee can or laundry bottle or in any puncture-proof container. These can be dropped off at the Board of Health during normal Board of Health hours. For further information or questions please contact the Board of Health at 978-649-2300, ext. 118.

Unwanted or expired medication can be dropped off at the Tyngsborough Police Department on Westford Road. All medication must be in a secured zip-locked baggie. No sharps (needles), liquids, thermometers, or other non-pharmaceutical wastes are allowed. Residents are encouraged to use this resource to rid their homes of dangerous, unwanted medication.
