How do I dispose of my needles?

If you don't dispose of needles properly, they can be dangerous to other people and to the environment. When you're finished with a sharp, place the large cap back on it, and dispose of it in a puncture-proof container. Ask your doctor or pharmacist where you can dispose of the container once it's full - it's different in every community, but most pharmacies will take them.
