Sharps Collection

  • Sharps/needle dropoff *only* at FD Headquarters; 96 Old Main St, South Yarmouth
  • Sharps must be in a sealed, hard plastic container
  • Replacement containers available upon request.
Sharps (ex. insulin needles, lancets, etc) are essential to the ongoing at-home medical care of many people. Once these items are used, they pose a unique disposal challenge as it is unsafe to just thow them in the trash. The Yarmouth Fire Department is proud to participate in the Barnstable county sharps collection program.

Sharps collection is offered at our Headquarters station in South Yarmouth, free of charge during normal business hours. We are unfortunately unable to offer this service out of our West Yarmouth and Yarmouthport stations. Sharps should be delivered in a clearly marked, sealed, hard plastic container. New containers are available to replace your filled containers.
