Keep America Beautiful-Topeka/Shawnee County

Announces new Safe Sharps Disposal program

Keep America Beautiful-Topeka/Shawnee County in partnership with Shawnee County Solid Waste announces a new Safe Sharps Disposal program. The kick-off was held November 7th at the Shawnee County Household Hazardous Waste Collection facility (HHW) at 131 NE 46th Street. More than 200 people attended the event with 60 of the new sharps containers being distributed.

With this new sustainable program, residents of Shawnee County can pick up a container free of charge while supplies last. Once the container is full of sharps, they can return those back to the HHW Facility for proper disposal. Shawnee County’s Household Hazardous Waste Facility will implement the on-going program as part of its commitment to keep hazardous material out of the local landfill.

This program is brought to you through a collaboration with Shawnee County Solid Waste, Waste Management, and Keep America Beautiful-Topeka/Shawnee
County.

For more information: call Philicia at (785) 224-0446 or e-mail kab@kabtopsh.org.

“Stop thinking about nature time as leisure time.

Time in nature is an essential investment in our children’s health and well-being (as well as our own). Changing our mindset will change our priorities; if we view nature time as essential to good health, we will be more likely to engage in it. Nurturing creativity and wonder is part of our responsibility as parents if we want to raise healthy, well-balanced children.”
