    I prefer local playgrounds.... but, I just keep mine in a shoebox, and chunk the shoebox after i put some duct tape around it.

    Be very careful with disposal.

    Options:
    1. Take them to a needle drop
    2. 2lb protein tub, it's solid enough to prevent them poking through.
    When it's full/ready to dispose, fill it with plaster, let it air harden, then superglue the top on and trash it.
    thanks to ctgblue. In addition to this, make sure the caps are secure on all needles and after the process is complete, cover the jug in duct tape.

    just buy the red sharps containers from ur local drugstore, the're like 3 bucks, put the pin only, not the whole combo in it and it will last for a long time. You then just take it to the hopspital, not like they are going to know what kind of pins they are. As far as slin pins, buy one of those gadgets that chop off the end of the pin, every once in awhile dispose of them into one of your sharps containers. after you clip the pin you can recap and dispose of a slin pin in the trash legally. Actually in some states my doc told me u can dispose of any pin in the trash as long as its capped.

    So long as you don't have any diseases that are transferred through the blood, I wouldn't say your being irresponsible by just disposing them. in the trash in a suitable container.

    Only problem with that Hamper is what if you don't know you have something? Size has the best idea beside using a local needle drop for getting rid of them.. use your head when you are getting rid of dangerous things, think would you want your child to find one of these on the side of the road and then play with it?

    All ya' have to do is put them into an empty bleach bottle, write the words SHARPS on them, and then just take them to your local hospital and give it to the people at the blood lab. They will take them without any questions.

    And ... because I know some guys are paranoid, you can say you're a diabetic if it will makeyou feel better when you take them in.

    And trust me .... they do not open the bottle to see what kind of needles are in there, or what residue may be left behind.

    I mentioned a similar procedure (just tape the container shut very well) on another board and got slammed for being "overly cautious". As was stated earlier I wouldn't want myself, my kids, or anyone else getting injured because of my irresponsibility. It only takes a minute to ensure the safety of everyone that comes in contact with such waste.

    Exactly, I mean so long as there is pretty much no way that they can come out of the container, then I think that is responsible. The best way is of course go to the hospital or something and do it there.

    Put them in an empty protien container and fill it with the expanding foam from a can, you can find it in a hardware store.

    It's not really the syringe that is the problem ..... it's that needle. At least dispose of those in something that won't let the trashmen, etc... get stabbed. Ya' know ... transmission of diseases, etc...

    I take mine to my docs office, the nurse takes them (along with my slin pins) and my doc never sees them. He knows when Im on cycle though so I dont really think it would matter.
