About Us

Established in 2002, SafeNeedleDisposal.org helps people learn how to safely dispose of used sharps. The project was formerly known as “The Coalition for Safe Community Needle Disposal.” In 2014, NeedyMeds, a 501(c)(3) national non-profit information resource for healthcare financial assistance programs, assumed ownership and management of the site from the Coalition.


Today, SafeNeedleDisposal.org remains a project of NeedyMeds, which receives support to operate the site and call center from leading medical technology and life sciences companies nationwide.
