    Sharps Bin

    Use a Sharps Bin to dispose of used needles or sharps. A sharps bin is a specially designed box with a lid you can get on prescription (FP10 prescription form) from a GP or pharmacist. When full, the box may be collected for disposal by the local council. Used needles are one of the main uses of a sharps bin. Used needles must not be bent or broken before disposal, and you must never try to recap a needle. In order to safely dispose of a needle in a sharps bin, you’ll need to use a clipper to snap off the needle or the sharp parts of a syringe. However, clips are not designed to remove lancet needles. Lancets are needles used by people with diabetes to check their blood glucose levels, and are designed to only be used once before disposal. If you have diabetes, clippers are free on prescription and will allow you to safely dispose lancets into a sharps bin.
