If you’re a diabetic or someone you love is living with diabetes – either type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes – you typically deal with many sharps during the course of daily home monitoring. The best way to protect yourself, young children, family members, sanitation workers and even the environment, is to place sharps in an FDA-approved sharps container. These sharps containers must be made of rigid plastic, be properly labeled to warn of hazardous waste inside, have a tight fitting lid and be leak-resistant and puncture-resistant. What goes in a sharps container? Needles, insulin syringes, pen needles, lancets, auto-injectors and anything else that can puncture or cut skin.
