Getting rid of Needles
What's the best way to get rid of your needles, I've heard putting them in a container with bleach or something is good, but do you just toss it out after that??

Resheath needles when finished.
Store used needles/syringes in a needle disposal container, a bleach bottle (thick plastic) or a coffee can (thick metal).
The container should not be see-through.
Dispose of the entire container when it is full.
NEVER store needles/syringes in a container that can be easily punctured (soda cans, glass bottles, juice bottles, milk cartons, etc).
NEVER flush needles/syringes down the toilet. Some of this waste can eventually end up back in the environment.
NEVER dispose of needles/syringes in a recycle bin.
NEVER dispose of loose needle/syringes in the garbage.
NEVER store needles/syringes (used or unused) in areas where children or animals have access.

LMR is right on. Nice post.
I use a plastic detergent jug (thicker than bleach bottle and no bleach to get on anything else). Once full, I take duct tape and secure the top to the jug...I even give the whole thing a few wraps. I then put the container in the trashbag from the diaper genie...nobody will ever go near that thing!!!!!
