"Syringes, intra-venous solutions and medicine that's injected will not be accepted."
So what should be done with them? P.S.: "intravenous" requires no hyphen.

From the City of Mountain View website:

1. Contact your personal physician, clinic administrator, or pharmacist and ask if they have a take-back program in place.
2. If you purchase sharps on-line, please remember to request a pre-addressed, prepaid mail-back box for your used sharps.
3. Residents may drop off sharps at the SMaRT Station, 301 Carl Road, Sunnyvale, at the Drop Off Center (red metal dumpster).
4. The Countywide Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Program also accepts home-generated sharps.
5. See www.hhw.org for a list of drop-off locations and other important information about approved sharps containers.
