I put my Byetta needles and Lantus syringes in a sharps container when I have used them. What do I do with the sharps container when it is full?

Hi there! You can check your local community to see if there is a medical waste company that can come to pick up your sharps container or there are several resources on line that you can look into such as (just an example). I would also check with maybe your doctor's office to see if they have any recommendations. Hope this helps!

We had one of those companies come to where I work - you get charged on a biannual schedule after they've come to you the first time, and it's not cheap, and they're really hard to get rid of. I take mine to my doctor's office.
