There are 19 people working at the Madison County ARC Recycling center on Buyea Road. Every day, they must be on the lookout for recycled items containing used hypodermic needles. Why? Because some of the residents of Madison County are not putting their used syringes in the proper biohazard containers.
Madison County, the Department of Solid Waste and Sanitation and the employees of the ARC Recycling Center are asking that you do the responsible thing: place all used syringes in bright red biohazard containers.
DO NOT place syringes in everyday plastic bottles. Use the red biohazard containers.
The bright red biohazard containers are FREE for the asking at all pharmacies in Madison County – all one has to do is ask and they will be handed a free container.
