How do I recycle or dispose of
my insulin pens and needles?

Our product’s packaging information should provide local guidance on how to dispose of your pen or needles. Disposing of your pen or needles is different from country to country.

Today, the majority of our pens end up in landfills once they have been used. To limit plastic ending up in nature, we are exploring take-back solutions that will ensure that our products are reused or recycled. By developing a circular system we are working towards minimising consumption of natural resources. 

We’re not there yet, but our environmental strategy, Circular for Zero, is putting focus on decisions that affect our product design and lifecycle management. A good decision early on can help us avoid our products ending up in landfills.
