How can you get rid of medical waste in Toronto?

I have a container filled with medical waste in my house, left over from when a family member was sick. It is in a sealed red container that has one of those biohazard stickers on it. From what I can see though the clear plastic top, it seems to be filled with some needles, a few morphine cartridges, and a lot of plastic tubing and gloves.
Since medical waste is prohibited from being thrown away or taken to the dump by the city of Toronto, (and it is, according to the language used here
, right?) how does one get rid of something like this? (Also, why do I have this in my house? Should the nurse who was here have taken it with her?)
