What to do if you find a needle, syringe or mouthpiece
Unfortunately, sometimes you might come across a discarded needle, syringe, glass stem, plastic mouth piece or another sharp object on the ground. If this happens and you decide to dispose of this material yourself there are certain steps that should be taken. The risks in doing this are small; however, these steps should be followed to decrease the risks as much as possible.
Remember to teach children NEVER to touch needles, syringes, or sharp objects and to tell an adult right away when they find one.
