I cheat.... Since I work in a hospital, I collect them in a container.... When it gets full I transfer them to a bag and pour them in our sharps container at work

Here's a thought. We can save our "stuff", and simply mail them to you!

Shellie, our containers at work are the size of kitchen trash cans... I frankly don't know if I'd get in trouble doing it or not! Lol

I know...ours are pretty big, too but I'm just the one who'd get caught and they'd accuse me of SOMETHING! LOL

I have a BD sharps container on my counter. In AZ, we can just toss them in the regular trash, but you have to clearly mark to not "recycle" the plastic container, so I write little messages on the side like "Please do not recycle this container - it really is what it says it is" or "Only a moron would try to recycle this container". I've been thinking about using the phrase "Used by a dog".
Of course, since no prescription is needed for syringes in AZ (and they are really cheap), I feel pretty confident that no one is going to be dumpster-diving for needles here because they can make more than the cost with a cardboard sign at an intersection in no time.
