Drop Off Sites for FOUND-SHARPS
This program provides free drop-off of syringes found by the general public throughout the community. Prior to this program, found syringes were often discarded in garbage carts and recycle carts; which is against Oregon state law, or simply thrown aside; which constitutes a major public health risk. Anyone finding a syringes should handle with caution, deposit them into a rigid container (with a lid), such as a metal coffee can. For list of drop off sites go to Marion County website.
