Proper Disposal of Household Medical Sharps Reduce Public Health Risks
(WAUKESHA, WI) – December is International Sharps Injury Prevention Awareness Month and Waukesha County would like to remind residents to properly dispose of their medical sharps. Wisconsin medical waste rules require safe management and disposal of sharps to prevent accidental needle sticks and other sharps injuries.
“We want to make sure residents understand that improper disposal of medical sharps is illegal and puts curbside collection and recycling facility workers at risk,” said Analiese Smith, Waukesha County Recycling and Solid Waste Supervisor. “Sharps can create a hazardous situation for people who are providing a service to us all.”
Safe Sharps Disposal Options
- Take sharps to a registered collection station. To find a site in Waukesha County go to www.waukeshacounty.gov/recycling and click on Residential Product Disposal, then click the Medical icon.
- Use a “mail-back” sharps program, which can be found by searching the internet. The company should provide containers and packaging which meet U.S. postal regulations.
- Contact your pharmacy, doctor, clinic or local hospital; many health care facilities accept sharps but are not legally required to register, therefore, may not appear on the list of registered sharps collection stations.

WAUKESHA COUNTY PARKS ANNOUNCES SPECIAL ARCHERY HUNT IN NASHOTAH PARK FOR DEER HERD CONTROL
(WAUKESHA, WI) – In a continued effort to reduce the deer population in Nashotah Park, Waukesha County will open a limited archery hunt within the park to hunters that are licensed and have deer harvest authorization (formerly known as deer tags) through the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR). The special archery hunt will take place from November 27 through December 17, 2018 in Nashotah Park, located at W330 N5113 County Highway C.
Deer browse assessments, conducted by the Wisconsin DNR staff and Waukesha County staff, have demonstrated that an overabundant deer population is preventing native plants and seedlings from regenerating in the park. The hunt will also assist in controlling the deer herd to allow for an adequate food source to sustain their population, and increase habitat for other wildlife in the park.
The park will remain open for all non-hunting recreational use during the special hunt. Hunting will not be allowed near the picnic shelters, maintenance buildings, or dog exercise areas. Hunters must remain in the designated hunting areas and follow the Wisconsin DNR archery hunting rules and regulations. Signs will be posted at all entrances to the park to notify patrons and blaze orange vests made available to visitors.
To aid Waukesha County in tracking the success of deer management at Nashotah Park, hunters are encouraged to report their successful harvest information by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or online at www.surveymonkey.com/r/WaukeshaCountyPLUDeerHunt2018. Additional information about the archery hunt in Nashotah Park and other Waukesha County hunting lands can be found online at www.waukeshacounty.gov/hunting.
