I suggest using them for practise on an orange then take them to your pharmacist for disposal. Don't throw them in the garbage.

We (parents and kids) practice on oranges, too. I think it's good to do this, because I noticed that there's a difference in the "feel" between the Epipen Trainers and real Epipens.

The nurse at DS's school likes to train the teachers with real EpiPens when she can. I send all of my expired pens to her.
