TIP: Test Strip Desposal

TIP:  You can use an empty Tic-Tac container for your test strip desposal and/or for your lancets. 

That sounds helpful, I've always kept it in my meter case.

I use the Accu-chek Compact Plus meter and the test strip drum (17 strips) come in a small canister, so I use that for my used lancets and test strips.

is it not good if you throw your test strips in the trashcan??

No, it's not good to dump test strips in the garbage.  You should be disposing of them in the sharps containers.  I guess if you had no other choice that would have to do though?
