Question:

From Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA:

I am just migrating to the U.S. and I am not aware of the regulations for the disposal of insulin syringes and pen needles. Can I use an incinerating device like a disintegrator or needlyzer to burn the sharps and throw the burned items into the general waste?

Answer:

Please see Disposal of Medical Sharps on the Environmental Protection Agency's web site.
