Well, we need to drive over to that Sam guy's place and punch him in the face!

I did get 2 home sharps containers, different brands. You can't empty them once you put stuff in them, so that didn't really work (I'll use them though). When I come up with something, I'll post on here. In the meantime, I'm using an empty prescription bottle, in a drawer, to fill with needles for a few days and then dumping into the Salsa Container which reduces the number of times I have to screw/unscrew that top.

They make those so that they don't just pop apart...but with a little ingenuity...you can pretty much open anything. After it's opened - snip off the plastic part that makes it hard to get into. I've done it.

I just use the plastic bottles for the Clorox wipes, it has a flip lid and it's about 5 inch circumference, so fits my trulicity self injectors too

I don't use a needle, but on the farm we have needles from vaccinating the animals. I usually cut an X in the lid of a coffee can, or a 2 litter pop bottle, and slip the needed through the slit. We tape the lid on the can, but metal coffee cans are getting hard to come by. The bottle we try to seal up in another container, but the needles don't seem to poke through them.
