Improper disposal of used syringes or sharps and medication can have harmful impacts on the sanitation workers that service our community and on our local natural resources. Syringes can cause injury or infection to the workers handling our waste. Medications flushed down the toilet or dumped down the storm drain pollute our rivers and lakes which serve as drinking water resources and wildlife habitat.
