USE OF NEEDLE DROP BOXES ENCOURAGING - MEANS LESS NEEDLES IN PEMBROKE PARKS
4/20/2017 7:48:50 AM
Pembroke city council was given an update on their new needle drop box program and the results are encouraging. Boxes are located in selected areas of the city where residents can place their used needles. The idea was to reduce the amount of needles being found in parks and public places across the city. By the end of December, city staff started to see the boxes were being used regularly. Which is good news for city council. Staff will now begin the process of contacing a collection company to begin picking up the contents and have them disposed of properly.
