How to safely dispose of bio-medical waste
Double-bag home medical waste and place it in the garbage. This includes soiled dressings, tubes, bags, containers, bandages and other absorbent materials, but not needles or medications.
Bring needles and medications to a pharmacy for proper disposal. Contact your local pharmacy in advance to ensure that they will accept needles and medications. Visit the Alberta Pharmacists' Association for a full list of participating pharmacies.
