Syringe Access Services provides people who inject drugs with sterile injection equipment and safe disposal of used syringes. Needle exchange services reduce the number of discarded needles in public and the incidence of injuries.
Safely dispose of used needles/syringes, if you see a used one.
Do not touch the needle with your bare hands.
Get the proper equipment: rubber or leather gloves, tongs or pliers, and a puncture-resistant plastic container.
Using tongs or pliers, pick up the needle and transfer it to the container.
