A MESSAGE FROM PENN WASTE:
In 2016, Penn Waste received over 500 pounds of medical waste at our recycling facility! This is a public safety hazard for our team members who manually sort through the recycling and are at risk of getting stuck by a needle.
Medical waste needs to be properly disposed of in the TRASH, not the RECYCLING.
If a person does not have a sharps container to dispose of their medical waste, they should do the following:
Please help us keep our team members safe!
