Do not dispose of prescription medications by flushing them down a toilet or drain, as this will contaminate our water system. For information about local medication disposal, visit the Broward Sheriff's Office website.
Sharps (Needle) Disposal
Sharps are considered biohazardous waste and should never be thrown directly into the trash. For information about their safe disposal and a list of sites accepting sharps, visit the Broward County Health Department.
Cell phones, remote control toys, laptops and power tools are just a few household items that use rechargeable batteries, which contain cadmium or lithium, both of which are considered toxic heavy metals. It is illegal to dispose of rechargeable batteries in regular trash. Visit Call2Recycle.org for a list of drop-off sites.
Regular Household Batteries
Common household alkaline batteries no longer contain mercury and are safe to dispose of in your regular garbage.
