The Lebanon Police department has partnered with Alice Peck Day Memorial Hospital to offer a Sharps Disposal Container in the lobby of the Lebanon Police headquarters. This will give community members a safe and environmentally friendly way to dispose of used and unwanted needles.
The container is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Anyone seeking to dispose of used and unwanted needles can stop in and dispose of the needles anonymously with no questions asked. The Police department already offers a Pharmaceutical Drug Drop Box in our lobby and offering a safe place to dispose of unwanted needles was a logical extension to this program.
"It's free, anonymous, environmentally friendly and it's available to you 24 hours a day," said Chief Richard Mello of the Lebanon Police Department.
