BD home sharps container

Safely contain your insulin sharps

Designed to hold both insulin syringes and pen needles,* the BD home sharps container is a leak-proof and puncture-resistant container for safe, convenient disposal of used sharps.

Locking lid

Our home sharps container features a permanently locking, snap-top lid.

Flexible capacity

Our home sharps container holds 70 to 100 insulin syringes, depending on the syringe size, or 300 pen needles.

The rules and regulations regarding sharps disposal may be different in towns and counties around the country, so check with your local sanitation or health department on the rules and regulations pertaining to your area. When the home sharps container is full, seal it and dispose of it properly per your community's guidance. If, as a last resort, you choose to put it in a trash receptacle, do not place it in a recycling bin, as insulin syringes and pen needles are not recyclable.

To maintain your comfort and safety, avoid reusing insulin syringes and pen needles.
