We are happy to provide proper sharps containers for students living on campus. Although diabetic students may use old detergent bottles for sharps containers at home, discarding syringes, pen needles and other diabetes supplies in a dorm is a little different. We want to keep visitors and staff who may need to enter your room safe and informed.
To obtain appropriate containers:
- Present directly to the Student Health Services Laboratory, second floor of Thomson Student Health Center
- You will be given two containers, one for immediate use and one for back-up
- Secure the top and return to the lab when full
- A new container will be provided each time a full one is returned for proper disposal
