The rules and regulations regarding sharps disposal are different in towns and counties around the country, so check with your local sanitation or health department.
If your community does not have specific disposal rules, follow these guidelines:
Never throw loose sharps into the trash, whether at home or away from home.
Never flush sharps down the toilet.
Don’t try to recap or clip a needle that has been used by another person. This can lead to accidental needle sticks, which may cause serious infections. Don’t attempt to remove the needle without the BD Safe-Clip™ clipper device because the needles could fall, fly off, or get lost and injure someone.
Put your used syringes, pen needles, and lancets in a sharps container.
Do not put it in your recycling bin – because syringes, pen needles, and lancets are not recyclable.
