Strathbogie Shire Council currently provides a service which enables shire residents to bring in full sealed containers of syringe/sharps in exhange for new empty containers.
However, this service was limited to the shire offices in Euroa.
In order to provide the convenience of other locations throughout the Shire, Euroa Health and Nagambie Health Care will now provide the service during normal business hours as of March 31st 2016.
This service is provided to maintain public health and limit the diversion of used syringes into the general waste collection streams.
The bulk of customers are diabetics or have other ongoing illnesses which require regular injections.
The drop-off point will be at reception at both locations, between 9am and 5pm Monday to Friday
Euroa Health - 36 Kennedy Street
Nagambie Health Care - 22 Church Street Nagambie
