Community Used Sharps Disposal Program

Florida Department of Health in Volusia County Environmental Health

An individual home user generates sharps as a result of self-injection or injection by a family member for the treatment or control of an illness such as diabetes, allergies or for other legitimate purposes. The sharps disposal program is available to private citizens to safely dispose of any household generated sharps at no charge. We will accept individual private citizens full sharp containers at the following addresses:

  • 1845 Holsonback Drive, Daytona Beach, FL 32117
  • 121 W. Rich Avenue, Deland, FL 32720
  • 717 W. Canal St. New Smyrna, FL 32168

New small and/or large sharps containers can be purchased at these locations for a nominal fee. 

Please see the Volusia County website for additional collection sites within the county
