The City of St. John’s in conjunction with the Department of Health and Community Services, and the St. John’s Community Action Group on Harm Reduction, have provided metal sharps containers throughout the city, as part of a harm reduction initiative. The intent of these metal sharps containers is to provide a safe means of needle disposal. Learn more.
