Sharps Program

Sharps Collection Program

What

If you have sharps or expired needles that you need to dispose of, do not throw them in the trash! Please dispose in a responsible safe manner through this municipal community partnership.

Where

CVS Pharmacy
676 Southbridge Street
Auburn, MA 01501

When

The store is generally open 24 hours per day, therefore allowing a convenient, easy and environmentally safe drop-off point for sharps or expired needles from residents.

How

The drop box is similar in size and shape to a typical mailbox and it is located in the rear of the store, in the pharmacy area. Sharps must be in approved sharps containers to prevent injury to those who participate in the program. If you need a sharps container, please contact the Auburn Board of Health at 508-832-7703.

Who

If you have questions about the program, or need to purchase a sharps container, please contact the Auburn Board of Health.
