[Pharmwaste] Sharps

Some of our county HHW facilities and events accept sharps, but the coverage is very spotty and I'd prefer to look at the retail and clinic angle vs. more pressure on local government to collect.

We have added a line to our contract in Tennessee and collect sharps at our mobile events .  We are very specific to have the customer place any exposed sharps in the sturdy container. We want staff to avoid handling and contact.

Sorry, this is a bit off topic. I am looking for contacts in Wisconsin or the Dakota's who can tell me why nearly all of your retail pharmacies collect sharps. Most all of ours do not. Given we're pretty well set up for pharm collection and are growing in that area, I need to move into this area. I did some zip code searches in MN and the east and west codes all pick up sites in WI or the Dakota's!

Thank you,
