I would call around to see if anywhere accepts unopened needles for low income or shelters.  You may have to pay to get them incinerated despite not being used.

Is there only one pharmacy in your town or area?   We take my guys used needles to a local pharmacy (not a chain) that is located in a grocery store whereas walgreens would not take them.   I would not throw them away either in regular garbage.

And these are unused.

Still sealed up in the packaging

I think those may be able to be donated but no clue where.

Contact your hospital. Many hospitals donate unopened supplies to third world countries where standards are not as high and strict as it is here.
