NEEDLE CLEANUP
Northern Kentucky advocacy group to remove used heroin syringes from lots, yards, alleys

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Saturday, May 10, 2014 3:03 PM EDT
COVINGTON, Ky.


A drug recovery advocacy group says it is organizing heroin syringe cleanups in Northern Kentucky.

The Kentucky Enquirer reports Northern Kentucky residents have spotted used hypodermic needles in parking lots, tree lawns, front yards and alleys. Officials say heroin addicts discard the needles after using them, and the syringes could cause health problems like hepatitis and HIV.

Jason Merrick, president of the local chapter of Northern Kentucky People Advocating Recovery, says the group is telling city officials and police departments that they will be scheduling weekend needle cleanups in all eight Northern Kentucky counties.

The cleanups begin this spring and continue through the summer.

Police in the region have asked residents to alert them to discarded needles.
