  1. MAKE YOUR OWN SYRINGE DISPOABLE BOX BY USING A EMPTY SODA POP BOTTLE DROP SYRINGE IN AND CLOSE CAP MARK IT WITH RED DUCT TAPE AS MEDICAL SUPPLIES THEN JUST THROW IN GARBAGE

  4. I ordered this on 6/29 for my mother that is insulin 3 x’s daily. They say it will ship 7-10 if not rec’d please call ———-. Well I did that today & was told it is only available to patients that take the drug ENBREL only. Which is not for diabetices.
    Go figure so this freebies is very misleading. Sorry all for the bad news guess we contuie to us milk jugs.

    • Trouble is “free” needle containers are usually not free and a lot of people cannot afford to keep buying them hence homemade needle containers. My drug store will only give you a free one if you spend so many $ a month.

  5. @#7 “Health Professional” – You say just “toss it in the trash.” That’s one of the stupidest, most irresponsible, dangerous and illegal things I have heard of in a long time. You, as an alleged health professional, should know better.

    • not at all, I also do that, with a sharps container, I called the landfill and they told me to do that. Maybe it would be best if you know the facts before you call people names…….

      • Actually they do know the facts as it is illegal to throw any used needles into the regular trash. You are supposed to dispose of them at a drop-off site like your Physician’s office or a pharmacy or a fire station. You’re putting other people’s lives at risk by throwing them into the regular trash and it’s a very stupid thing to do. The people at your landfill aren’t very intelligent. What if a child got into your trash and got stuck by those needles or your dog or your cat? I don’t need reply I just asked those questions to give you something to think about.

  7. I got this freebie, and it’s great for any of us who’ve turned into human pincushions. There are a number of conditions – even aside from diabetes – where we’ve gotta stab ourselves fairly often to stay healthy πŸ™‚

  10. I have tried numerous times to order this needle container, but I have had no luck getting through with the site. I husband takes shots daily, this would be great for him. Does anyone have any suggestions on what I need to do.
    Thank you

  11. Darn, my husband and I are both insulin dependent diabetics. He takes 3 shots a day of insulin and I take at least 4, sometimes more. He also takes 1 Enbrel shot a week for his Ankylosing Spondilitis and I take 2 shots of Heparin a day, so we could seriously use this sharps container, but I keep getting an error page. Right now we use gallon milk containers, but would really prefer a sharps container because the bright red color makes them safer in my opinion:-(

  12. Great freebie! Thanks! ALSO … Anyone want my diabetes so you have a real need for this one, , I’d be happy to share it with them!!!

  13. Thank you Goob. I’m diabetic and although I’m provided with a free sharp disposal container by my doctor, I can always use an extra for the cottage. Here, you just fill the container and take it back to the doctor or any pharmacy. They empty it and give the container back. It’s free here to dispose of sharps which is handy.

  14. If you don’t have a sharps container at home, using an empty beverage bottle is fine. The needles can’t penetrate the plastic, which is why they make good containers. When it’s full, wrap the top in duct tape and toss it in the trash.

    Most offices, pharmacies, etc, will not take filled sharps containers bc their biohazard waste is contracted by the amount the facility puts out. Taking sharps from the community greatly increases their weight, thereby increasing the cost of their disposal service. At least that’s how it works in PA.

  15. Awesome, my doctor has prescribed B12 shots to me, that I give myself at home. This will come in handy so my kids don’t poke themselves taking out the trash.

  16. I can use this for sure!! My service dog has 24 allergies and gets two shots per month and this will be much handier than the zipper bag I use to keep them in until they get taken to the vets. Thanks! πŸ™‚
