They seek to create a community focused not only on finding existing safe restroom access but also looking forward and participating in restroom advocacy for transgender, intersex, and gender nonconforming folk.

Sharps Disposal

For folks who take injectable forms of Hormone Replacement Therapy, you may have wondered what to do with the used syringes. Here is some information on how to dispose of your used syringes.

Disposal Info Sheet

Home Disposal of Syringes

You can prevent contamination of our waterways by safely disposing of syringes at home, using a needle exchange program, or via a syringe disposal company.

  • Place sharps in a strong plastic bottle (e.g. bleach, liquid detergent) or metal container with a screw-on or tightly secured lid to prevent accidental contact with the waste.

  • Secure lid with duct tape.

  • Place sealed container in your regular trash.

  • Keep out of the reach of children and pets.

  • The Hazardous Materials Management Facility (HMMF) is currently accepting sharps from Boulder County, City and County of Broomfield, and Town of Erie residents free of charge during normal hours of operation

  • Sharps are NOT accepted by recycling programs. Do not put sharps in with the recycling, even if the container you use to seal them is recyclable, as this puts staff at the recycling center at risk.

Hazardous Materials Management Facility
1901 63rd St
Boulder, CO 80301
Hours: 8:30 a.m. - 4 p.m. Wed-Sat.
