Default Sharps Bin Disposal

One of our party has to have daily injections and therefore we have to bring medication and the sharps bin with us on holiday. Does anyone know if we can take the sharps bin along to the local pharmacy for disposal rather than bring this back to the UK.

Summersun,

What a very good question, we have had need of advice and help from the local pharmacy in PP on more that one occassion, they are very, very helpful and I feel shure that this type of service will be availible.

I look forward to the general replys you will get as it is of interest to all who inject for whatever reasons.

regards,

jimbo

I think it is more likely that the local health centre or one of the Drs surgeries would take your sharps for disposal but it depends if they have to pay for their clinical waste to be collected as they do in the UK.
