Westwood Sharps Collection Program
Needles, lancets, and syringes are all considered sharps.
Sharps must only be placed in this approved container for proper disposal.
Westwood residents may obtain approved sharps containers free of charge during business hours at the Board of Health Office, Town Hall, or at the Senior Center.
Tape lid securely closed and place containers, one at a time in the Sharps Collection Kiosks located at:
Police Station at 590 High Street. Do not put loose needles, boxes or oversize containers in the kiosk.
Kiosks will not accept loose needles.
Please do not put any other type of container into Kiosks. Using containers that are too large causes the Kiosk to malfunction and jeopardizes the sharps collection program.
