The Health and Human Services Department is taking steps to help residents cope with a new Massachusetts law designed to get used syringes and lancets out of the trash.

The department will host a Sharps Disposal Day, allowing residents to dispose of needles used for medical purposes.

Needles should be stored in closed, safe containers and delivered to the Recycling Depot at the Rumford Avenue Resource Recovery Center on Saturday beginning at 7:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. A second Disposal Day will be held in October. For more information visit ci.newton.ma.us.
