Environmentally-Friendly Needle Disposal Project

The Facts:
  • In Arkansas alone, nearly 500,000 needles, syringes, and lancets—sharps—are disposed of in an eco-destructive way per day.

  • Annually, this totals more than 182 million used sharps that are disposed of improperly.

Why You Should Care:
  • This destructive behavior not only poses a hazard to the environment, but also to wildlife, sanitation workers, and others who may come in contact with serious health conditions—some of which include HIV, Hepatitis B, and Hepatitis C.
    In fact:

  • Nearly 21 million cases of Hep B, 2 million cases of Hep C, and 260,000 cases of HIV each year are due to improper management of sharps.

  • 40-60 percent of new Hep B and Hep C cases are due to incorrectly disposing sharps.

This could be you!

What You Can Do:

There is a way to help stop this, however, and it is simple: to send these needles to drug companies for incineration. Understandably, you may not have the time or resources and we, at Dr. Kumar’s Medical Clinic, are providing you with the opportunity to be part of solving this problem:
