Huntsville, AL, April 04, 2024 –(– TriHaz Solutions, LLC (TriHaz) and Star Discount Pharmacy (Star Pharmacy) are pleased to announce a new community sharps disposal program that will serve the Huntsville and Madison, Alabama and Pulaski, Tennessee areas.

“TriHaz is a local company that serves the communities where we operate,” says Kevin Webber, TriHaz Partner. “We continually receive calls from people asking how to dispose of their personal sharps waste and we service businesses. There was a need to provide a safe, convenient disposal option for individuals and Star Pharmacy stepped up as the perfect partner.”

Drop-off boxes are clearly labeled for sharps only and all sharps must be in a puncture-resistant, sealed container. No pharmaceuticals are allowed. “Sharps” is a term used for devices with sharp points or edges that can puncture or cut skin.
