[IP] Waste Disposal

If you are in San Francisco, just go to any Walgreens.  They will give you
free sharps containers and take the full ones back for disposal.  As for
your thoughts on creating more waste.  I have to disagree.  Since pumping, I
have considerably less waste requiring special disposal.  The only sharps I
have are the introducer needle, from the sof-set, removable syringe needle
and lancets.  All pump syringes and tubing sets go right into regular trash.
Your endo's office or the local ADA office may have more information
regarding the procedure in your local area.  Good luck.  Frank
