Flu Shots are available for those over 18 years of age for $30, or are free with Medicare Part B.
Sharps include hypodermic needles, pen needles, intravenous needles, lancets, and other devices that are used to penetrate the skin for the delivery of medications used in the care of people and animals. Once the syringe is no longer with the needle and no longer capable of piercing the skin, it can be disposed in the garbage assuming it’s home-generated waste. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) currently only lists the "Disintegrator" as a needle destruction device approved for use by self-injectors. Do not attempt to remove, bend, break or recap the needle. Also, note that empty medication vials can be disposed in the garbage.
We accept sharps from home (not business) generated use in FDA approved sharps containers.
We can only accept one container at a time due to storage restrictions.
We cannot accept any sharps containers that have medications (pills, liquids, etc.) in them.
We do not accept any containers over 12 quarts.
If you purchase another container, the disposal fee will be $2. If you are not purchasing another container, then the disposal fee will be $6.

The aveoTSD is a brilliantly simple, effective and noninvasive anti-snoring medical device. It provides an easy solution for the treatment of problem snoring. It is only available by dentist or medical doctor prescription.
Traditional mandibular advancement devices indirectly move the tongue forward by moving the mandible. But aveoTSD gently suctions to the tip of the tongue, preventing it from falling back into the throat and obstructing the airway.
Made of soft medical-grade silicone, aveoTSD is available in three sizes: small, medium and large — with the medium size fitting 95 percent of patients. The aveoTSD requires no impressions, no adjustments and has no moving parts. Best of all, it is indicated for anyone — even those with TMJ issues and the edentulous.
