Default Disposing of Pen Needles for New Diabetic?

What I do is use an laundry detergent or fabric softener bottle and when it is full I tape the cover and take it to my doctors office and they dispose of it for me. I make sure I write sharps on the outside so they know. I have done this since finding out I was diabetic ten years ago. You can also purchase a sharps container most pharmacies carry them.

Default Disposing of Pen Needles for New Diabetic?

BD makes a little gadget called a Safe T Clip or something like that. After you use the needle, you put it into this thing that clips the needle part off. You then put the clear part back onto where the needle was and twist it off the pen. You can then put it into a garbage bag and dispose of it in the garbage because there's no needle on there anymore. Sorry I don't have the right name, but you can buy them at a pharmacy and they're pretty cheap. After it fills with needles (it holds a whole year's worth), you just toss it away. It already has biohazard on it. I've used them for years. When I use the syringes I use it to clip the needles off the syringes. I put the syringes into a coffee can and when it's full I tape it up. No needles for anybody to get stuck with.
