Update: Starting January 1st, 2015 the needle collection site will be moved to the Police Station on Panther Way.

The town’s needle/syringe disposal kiosk is currently relocated in the lobby of the DPW office at 257 Fisher Street. The kiosk will be available to residents during normal DPW business hours.

To protect the health of personnel servicing the kiosk, absolutely no needles/syringes or lancets will be accepted unless they are inside an approved sharps container. Laundry detergent containers, cardboard boxes and plastic bags are not acceptable. Also the needle kiosk is not for the disposal of medications. The Franklin Police Department has a collection bin for residents to dispose of medications.

Residents may purchase small sharps containers from Wal-Mart, Rite Aid, Walgreens and Target for a nominal fee. The Town of Franklin does not provide sharps containers to residents.
