Lidocaine Capsules, used in dentistry, are small cylindrical glass tubes containing anesthetics which are screwed onto dental syringes, and are commonly aspirated while the practitioner injects the patient.
These capsules can be put in regulated containers ( BIO BOXES ) and no special CONTAINERS are required. We know that a large publicly traded waste company is trying to tell customers they need to use a special “BLACK BOX” for this type of waste. This is simply not true if the capsules are incinerated. This is frankly another scam by the big waste companies trying to gain more money from customers.

Medical Waste Disposal of items such as sharps and syringes isn’t simple, especially for patients at home. You can’t simply toss them in the trash or recycling bin, even if they’re inside a plastic bottle.
