New Safe Needle Disposal ProgramSanta Clarita residents now have a free and easy way to dispose of “sharps,” or needles and lancets from the convenience of their own home. “Sharps” disposal kits can be picked up from the Waste Management/Blue Barrel yard at 25772 Springbrook Road, Saugus, CA 91350 from 8-5, Monday through Friday. Your first kit is free, the second is available at a $5.00 co-pay. Seniors may receive 2 kits free, with any additional kits available for a $5.00 co-pay. Limit one at a time.
Fill up your kit at your own convenience. When it is full, simply mail it back using the pre-paid postage label that is included in the kit. Please make sure to sign the form that is included on the front pocket of your kit. Waste Management will ensure your sharps are disposed of safely. “Many don’t realize that throwing your
needles away in the trash is illegal,” explains Sandra Pursley, Waste Management Community Relations Manager. “Improperly disposed syringes, hypodermic needles and other SHARPS can pose a serious hazard to our families and community.” Surveys show that more than 3 billion needles and syringes used by self-injectors end up in trash or recycling containers, or are flushed down toilets every year. This improper disposal puts sanitation workers and the public at risk of needle sticks and serious infections.
Make sure you dispose of your “sharps” responsibly, and pick up your free kit today.
For over 40 years, Waste Management has been a service provider in the Santa Clarita Valley. Though timely and efficient trash collection remains a top priority,
Waste Management/Blue Barrel has also been proactive in efforts to promote recycling and community involvement. For more information on how we “Think Green,”

Turn Your Trash into Cash; Recycle Bottles and Cans!Thanks to the California Beverage Container Recycling and Litter Reduction Act, you can receive 5 cents for containers less than 24 ounces, and 10 cents for containers 24 ounces or larger. All you have to do is take your bottles and cans to a recycling center to claim the CRV amount, and watch that change add up!
Thanks to the CRV cash incentive, more than 200 billion
aluminum, glass, and plastic beverage containers have been recycled since the program began in 1987. Just last year, Californians bought 21.9 billion carbonated and noncarbonated drinks in aluminum, glass, plastic and bi-metal containers. More than 16.1 billion of those containers were recycled, saving natural resources, conserving energy and extending the life of our landfills. Imagine what we’ll accomplish if we recycle the other 5.8 billion!

Get in touch with your building’s manager and let them know you have an interest

The State of California mandates that we divert at least 50% of what we throw away from the

The illegal dumping of waste can pose a significant public health, environmental, and safety issue to the City of Santa Clarita. Furniture, mattresses, other large items and trash are routinely dumped on sidewalks and alleys this not only looks bad, but it is costly for public works employees to clean up. The good news is there’s no need to dump illegally, because Waste Management offers free bulky item drop-offs at the Waste Management/ Blue Barrel Yard at 25772 Springbrook Road, Saugus, CA 91350 from 8-5, Monday through Friday. Acceptable items for drop off include extra trash and recycling, electronic waste, tires, yard clippings, and bulky items like furniture, mattresses and
You can also drop off and donate your gently used clothing at the new Salvation Army drop box located at the Waste
Management/ Blue Barrel Yard. Donating your clothing is a simple, convenient and charitable way to reduce the amount of waste you send to the landfill, all while helping your fellow community members in need.
