Needle disposal available April 24-28

Needle disposal available for residents

The Bartholomew County Health Department will accept Sharps disposal containers April 24 to 28.

Local residents may bring used needles to the department in their current containers — such as laundry bottles or coffee cans — for proper disposal.

People who bring a current prescription that orders needle use will receive a red Sharps container to use, fill and return to the department for a replacement.

The health department is located at 2675 Foxpointe Drive, Suite B, in Columbus.

For more information, call 812-379-1555, Option 1, between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
