Safely Dispose of Needles

People use syringes for many reasons, including treatment of medical conditions such as diabetes, arthritis and cancer. Others may use syringes because of an addiction or to administer Naloxone. Studies show that people will dispose of needles safely if they have access to safe disposal sites. We are providing these sites to ensure that no one gets accidentally hurt.‌
