Cortland Regional provides safe needle collection services to individuals
in the local community who use hypodermic needles to dispense medications
in their homes.
Please note that Cortland Regional does not distribute needle collection
containers to the public. In order to be accepted, all needles must be
placed in a rigid, puncture resistant container with a sealed lid. A detergent
container is adequate, as long as it has a lid that is securely on the
container. The outside container must also be clean and dry.
Needles are accepted for collection by our main laboratory Monday through
Friday from 6:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. Please contact the lab at 607-756-3618
with any questions.
