Safe Options for Needle Disposal

MAY 01, 2005

The US Environmental Protection Agency has released 2 free pamphlets on the proper way to dispose of needles used for self-injections. While millions of Americans use self-inject medications, patients with diabetes represent a large segment of the population. The agency pamphlets reference community drop-off programs, household hazardous waste facilities, at-home needle destruction devices, and mail-back programs as options for the safe disposal of needles.
