In areas with high diabetes rates, it’s not uncommon to see syringe disposal containers mounted on the walls of restrooms.

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,
