Safe Syringe Disposal Program

It is estimated that people with diabetes in New Jersey use 200,000 syringes and 500,000 lancets every day – or 252 million each year. Safe disposal of this volume of a potential hazard is a challenge for patients, healthcare providers and the community at large.

The Center for Nutrition and Diabetes Management provides disposal containers to people with diabetes and others who use lancets or syringes. There is a one-time, $10 non-refundable fee to participate in the Safe Syringe Disposal Program.

Container exchanges are accepted Monday through Friday from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm.

WE ARE NOT ABLE TO ACCEPT ANY OTHER CONTAINERS; CONTAINERS WITHOUT CAPS; CONTAINERS OVERFLOWING WITH SYRINGES; AND/OR CONTAINERS VISIBLY SOILED WITH BLOOD OR UNKNOWN SUBSTANCES.

The Safe Syringe Disposal Program is located at the Center for Nutrition and Diabetes Management, in the Wescott Medical Arts Center Suite 102 (9100 Wescott Drive, just past the Hunterdon Medical Center).

The Student With Diabetes

Children with diabetes have special needs when it comes to their school experience. It is critical to communicate those needs to school personnel who are responsible for the child´s safety throughout the day. When school personnel gain a better understanding of diabetes through this program, a child´s experience in school will be positive.

To help school personnel understand the needs of the child with diabetes, certified diabetes educators are available to conduct educational in-service programs at local schools.

For more information, please call the Center for Nutrition and Diabetes Management at (908) 237-6920.
