Grand Forks opens new medical disposal site

(Grand Forks, ND) -- Grand Forks Public Health is opening a medical disposal drop-off site. 

The service is meant for needles and other hazardous medical waste that can't be thrown away with normal trash.  The sharps must be in a plastic container in quart or gallon sizes.  The goal of the operation is to reduce the spread of hepatitis throughout the community.  The new 24-hour site is located at the Withdrawal Management Center off South Fourth Street.  

It will replace the Altru Hospital Center, which is currently under construction.
