What is the best way to safely dispose of a used Accu-Chek FastClix lancet drum?

It is important to dispose of used lancets so they cannot cause injury. Whilst used Accu-Chek FastClix lancet drums can safely be disposed of in household waste, some local councils provide a sharps disposal service by supplying individuals with sharps bins and collecting them when they are full. Check with the local council which disposal services are available.

Many NHS organisations have sharps policies outlining their requirements for provisions in patients’ homes. For example, for patients who are carriers of infectious diseases, recommendations usually suggest that suitable arrangements need to be made for the disposal of the used articles as contaminated waste.
