Hi...my name is Gayle and I'm just browsing around in the discussions on this team. I found your message concerning your emergency needs and want to thank you for it. I'm especially interested in knowing that Waste Management provides the Sharp disposals. I plan to contact my provider and ask if that program is available in Georgia, where I live.

I certainly hope so as I currently use half-gallon milk containers and its a problem "sealing" them. Have settled on using a glue gun but its not very convenient. I like Sharp disposal containers and its just easy. Thanks again for your input.
G.

Hi Everybody,
As someone who was diagnosed with Diabetes about 5 years ago because of medications I'm on for another condition, I was living in a combination Independent/Assisted Living facility and Sharps containers were provided to me. About 3 years ago I decided to move to an apartment complex to live on my own. Before I moved I started thinking about Sharps containers and some sort of emergency system I could put in place. I discovered Think Green From Home that is run by Waste Management - you decide what size Sharps container you want and they mail it to you with a postage paid, appropriately labeled box to return the container to them, and you get a Certificate of Disposal from them. The emergency system I got was Philips Lifeline and it's been really handy in a couple of instances when I've had really low blood sugar.
Sorry to be so long, but I know how long you can search the web and wonder if you're getting the right thing.
