AbstractAn apparatus and process for sterile disposal of used syringes is provided. The apparatus includes a heat conductive container for maintaining used syringes and a means for applying heat to the heat conductive container in an amount sufficient to melt the plastic of the syringes. The melted plastic can encapsulate the non-plastic portions of the syringe and form a molten mass. The molten mass is rendered sterile by the heat. The process for sterile disposal of used syringes in this manner is also provided.
