There are sharp containers from BD for $2 and one can store many used syringes. One can dispose them to clinic or doctors office. They will dispose with their sharp disposal

The question has come up concerning students or personnel on campus who use injectable insulin, and what is to become of the syringes after use. If there are other universities that have encountered this issue, I would appreciate hearing about how it was dealt with.

Thank you,
