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 Building,  9100 Wescott Drive, Suite 102, just past the Hunterdon Medical Center.

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