The Ontario Pork Congress will be taking in sharps on June 20.
Sharps can be dropped off during the Congress between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.
It’s a joint effort of the Ontario Pork marketing board and industry partners.
The dropoff will be at a collection booth to the right of the main entrance to the community hall.
Sharps must be in a puncture-proof, leak-resistant plastic container with a tight-fitting lid – no larger than a two-gallon (14.5 litre) pail.
Secure the lid with duct tape to reduce the risk of spillage during transport and disposal.
The offer is for needles and scalpel blades only. They are not taking expired medications or used vaccine vials.
Collected sharps will be picked up immediately after the drop-off period which means that 3 p.m. is a firm deadline for drop-offs.
