Picking Up Dirty Needles: Locals Launch a Program
Most people shun the discarded needles of drug addicts but today a group is gathering this hazardous waste from Coopers Gulch near Eureka. The Humboldt Area Center for Harm Reduction (HACHR), a local non profit, is launching a needle clean-up program. “We will be in Eureka today at Cooper Gulch from 10:30 – 12 collecting dirty needles to help make our community safer for everyone,” writes Michelle Ellis who works with the group.
The group is wants suggestions for future clean up sites and for other areas of concern that the group could address. Contact them via their Facebook with ideas.
