Sorry To Bring This Up Again -- Recycling Dexcom Sensor Applicators?

#1

I know that this has been covered before, but as a new Dexcom G6 user, it breaks my heart to just throw out those G6 sensor applicator devices. It seems that Dexcom could re-use them if they were able to be sterilized somehow.

They really can’t be thrown into a mixed recycle bin since there’s plastic and metal parts meshed together and they’re impossible to separate.

Does anyone have any advice as to how these applicators can be recycled?

Thanks!

Nope. and they are their own sharps container, so they are safe for the regular trash.

There’s already a thread on this subject here, so I’m going to lock this one.
