Its absurd to have to worry about such things while on a beach! But.. Its is absolutely Pertinent to have a place where needles can be safely discarded. If someone stepped on a needle a week AFTER it was used by a person that was infected with Hepatitis B... You have a high chance of contacting it.
Lets sign this... at least it is a step in the RIGHT direction.

It is so unhealthy and dangerous for all living things, to have the needles left around.

I found a used needle outside of Marina Del Rey Hospital after noticing it when a little girl and her dad rolled over it on her BigWheel Tricycle. I picked up that needle and walked it into the emergency room and tried to give it to them. I told them i found it outside and they looked at me cockeyed and said "we can't take that". So I looked at them cockeyed and said "is this a damn hospital". The emergency room door opened and a gloved hand took and disposed of the needle. #doyourjob

Facilitating appropriate disposal of unused medications is essential for the health and safety of our population and our shorelines and waters. A plan which includes the manufacturers in the chain of responsibility by chipping in 0.001 of their sales -- closing the loop -- is entirely fair.
