As of 2015, several drug and medical equipment manufacturers supply free sharps containers to help users who need to dispose of sharps safely on a regular basis, including Enbrel, Humira and BD. All of these companies require users to register before sending a free container.
Diabetic Connect offers a link to state-by-state regulations on the disposal of sharps and other medical waste. Some states' health departments also offer sharps disposal kits to residents who require them, as well as cooperating in the safe disposal of filled containers obtained from other sources. Some companies, including BD, offer a sharps disposal service by post for users of their equipment.
