Virtua Health Safe Syringe Program
To find the location nearest you, call toll-free 1-888-virtua3 (1-888-847-8823) Monday - Friday from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Participants receive a sterile, durable container to dispose of used sharps. Syringes fit into the container without the needle needing to be broken or recapped. When the container is full, return it for a new container to the Virtua health location where it was obtained. Virtua ensures that the syringes are disposed of in an environmentally responsible manner. There may be a minimal one-time fee.
