Syringes & Needles
Residents with medical conditions requiring the use of hypodermic needles may pick up a free Sharps Container at any Walgreens pharmacy in San Francisco. When it is full, just return it to Walgreens for proper management.
Ask your medical provider(s) if they can take personal syringes and needles.
Sharps or needles that are improperly disposed of in the trash or recycling can pose a health hazard to garbage collectors and the environment.
