The Safe Sharps project is an initiative of the Riverina Eastern Regional Organisation of Councils (REROC) supported by Australian Diabetes Council NSW Branch and partially funded by the NSW Department of Health.
The project aims to assist sharps users to find the most convenient location to dispose of their sharps safely. The on-line facility allows users to submit a location address and then search for the locations of single needle disposal, sharps container disposal points or sellers of sharps containers.
Users can also access the same information using their smart phone’s mobile web capabilities or by downloading the approved iPhone application. Using the website or downloading the Smart Phone applications are free of charge.
