    How to dispose of needles & syringes

    • 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.

    Damn, I guess I should quite leaving my used syringes on the sink at the gym... In all seriousness, i re-shield mine and throw'em in a protein contain and tape it shut when i'm ready to throw it out...Our hospitals don't have "needle drops" like some places do for used syringes...

    Shit! I didn't do any of that stuff for my cycle. I mean I did resheath them, and put em back in the packages and then threw them into a plastic bag, and when it was time to throw them all out I just tied the bag in a knot, and wrapped the entire bag in duct tape, nothing was poking out of there. But next time I will store them like you said and throw them out properly. Thanks, good post.

    Nice post, I was just wondering about that. I still think my idea of hiding them unsheathed in movie theatre seats would be more fun

    Excellent Post. Hospitals and clinics pay big money to dispose of this stuff properly. Unfortunately we dont have that luxury. We have to be careful and do our best to keep others safe.

    Here's a little tidbit for some Canadians...needle exchanges will give you biohazard containers for free to put your needles in. Go down to one...they will give you free needles and a new bio container. All you do is bring back the container with the used needles in it and they give you new needles and another bio container back. It's totally free. They'll give you a hand full of whatever needles you want.

    I actually found this out while phoning around to see where I could drop some used needles off. The fire department will take them with no questions asked...but they prefer that they're in a puncture proof container. The guy I talked to at the fire hall said that you can be charged by improperly disposing of used syringes. I call bullshit but I'm not going to test the laws.

    PS don't go to the needle exchanges at night!

    I throw them in a protein jug when I'm finished with them then duct tape the lid on and throw it out on trash day.

    I wish my doctor's office had a drop for them though.

    Here's a nice list of needle exchanges by state/province. I'm not quite sure how recent this list is though, and it doesn't have all the states. But if you do a search on google for needle exchanges you should find something. They usually have them in Aids clinics and such.

    My nephews like to make stick houses with them. My nieces make little horses with them once they dress em up with clothes and such. Sometimes they fill them up with water and have water fights with them. I say what the hell. They were gonna be thrown away anyway. Might as well let them have some fun.
