How It Works

  • Become a member. It’s free and completely anonymous.
  • Complete a short intake with an outreach worker.
  • Bring your used syringes with you, if you’ve been storing them.
  • Receive a start-up kit of up to 100 new syringes & works bags with cottons, cookers, preps,   sterile water and ties.
  • After initial visit, you will receive a clean syringe for every used one you return, if feasible. We strive to get back 100% of what we give out.
  • Give us a call when you are ready to schedule a time to meet for your next exchange. When you call have your member ID handy and let the worker know how many you’ll be exchanging.
  • Return used syringes in the hard container that we will provide. Please remove all trash from containers!!
