Due to the pandemic, disposal sites may be temporarily closed or altered their hours. We recommend calling or visiting the program website.
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.
