Drop Needles Off at the Sharps Drop-Off Kiosk
If you have sharps containers, or needles, that you need to recycle, you will find only a few places that readily take those items. One of the options that you have in the San Diego area is the Sharps Drop-Off Kiosk located at the Alpine Sheriff Station. This service is great for those who are diabetic and use needles for insulin, and for anyone who has dangerous and unneeded needles at home. Those old needles can be very dangerous, and you don’t want to have them lying around the home.
