  • Sharps disposal - Barcelona Area

    I’m going to Spain this evening but I’m currently having daily injections. I have an empty sharps bin which is in two pieces to fit in my bag, but coming home it will be bigger because it has been put together. Does anyone know where I can dispose of the bin before heading home? I’ve just spent the past two hours trying to get my case and bags within the weight limit so I want to offload as much as possible before coming home.

    So can I just take the box to a pharmacy or some other medical facility?

    Call in at a city centre pharmacy and ask. Bound to be local addicts and Pharmacies may well run needle exchange so would be used to taking in sharps boxes. I did this when working in Cambridge.
    Have a great time. Could take advice from airport pharmacy as well while you wait to board.

      I've had a quick look on an ex-pat forum and it looks like health centers accept sharps containers.

      Probably worth trying to track one down early on your trip.

      Have a nice break!!
      I remember when a blog was an individual boot.
