Needle Safety at Parks and Other Community Areas

Our city has many beautiful parks with amenities for families, dogs, bicyclists, walkers, and many more; but unfortunately, some of these parks also have disposed needles or syringes left on the grass or in the play areas. To safely deal with needles, here are some tips from Bernalillo County, the City Parks and Recreation Department, and APD:
· Do not walk or run barefoot in the parks.
· If you see needles or syringes in city parks, you can call 311 to request needle pick-up.
· If you encounter needles and decide to dispose of them, wear latex rubber gloves or leather utility gloves before handling, to protect against blood borne pathogens, fluid contamination and chemicals.
· When picking up needles, ensure that you use tweezers, tongs, or pliers. Never pick up needles or syringes with your hands, even if you have gloves.
· The City requires that needles and syringes are disposed of in Sharps containers. Some, but not all, APD area commands and substations have a Sharps container that you can safely dispose of needles.
· A Bernalillo County Needle Safety flyer is attached for further reference.
