Dispose of it safely - participating pharmacies
Many pharmacies provide safe disposal for needles, syringes, diabetic lancets and other sharps. Contact your pharmacy to see if they participate in sharps disposal.
Needles must be properly packaged to prevent injuries. Many pharmacies offer sharps containers at their locations. You may also use a puncture-resistant, non-breakable, sealed container (i.e. plastic bleach bottle, milk container or pop bottle).
Dispose of it safely - Black Cart
Properly packaged needles can be placed in your black cart. Put needles into a puncture-resistant, non- breakable, sealed container (i.e. plastic bleach bottle, milk container or pop bottle). Label the bottle as "sharps" with a permanent marker.
Do not use cardboard boxes for packaging as they can break open or rip.
