Educate the community of proper safety procedures for used dropped syringes through a campaign online, flyers, meetings, etc. In addition, needle stations might prevent risk and it would be helpful to have them in areas where needles are commonly found. We could partner with the City, a homelessness services provider, or a drug recovery nonprofit to research and install.
Safer for children, adults, users and non-users alike. It may be able to create less of a risk factor of people or pets stepping on needles and being exposed to hep C or other blood born illnesses.
