Health and safety is paramount in our communities and to ensure that citizens are not exposed to the hazards of needles and other dangerous objects a strategy was developed to increase safe needle disposal in the community. As a result, a Safe Needle Disposal Tool Kit addresses the following goals:

• To raise community awareness about safety

• To reduce the number of discarded needles on our streets and public places

• To reduce risk and prevent injury to the public

• To provide options for the safe disposal of needles

The tool kit includes specific information about new disposal locations including health and safety information and within the PDF link below.
