Please use the tongs to safely pick up the needle(s), place them in the container and fasten the lid. Containers may be taken to a needle drop off box at:
Street Project Needle Disposal Drop Boxes
- North Central: Alley behind 1100 Cameron Street and Garnet Street (off of 5th Avenue)
- Downtown Core: Alley by Core Community Park - 1800 block, Montreal Street
