Selkirk College aims to create a safe environment for all employees and students.
We have installed used syringe depository boxes in some of our washrooms.
People use syringes for many reasons, including treatment of medical conditions such as diabetes, arthritis and cancer. Others may use syringes because of an addiction or to administer Naloxone. Studies show that people will dispose of needles safely if they have access to safe disposal sites. We are providing these sites to ensure that no one gets accidentally hurt.
Selkirk College has installed Sharps Needle Disposal Boxes at:
A-wing men's washroom
Men's and women's main washrooms
Men's and women's Sentinel washrooms
Men's and women's lower gym washrooms
Mary Hall wheelchair-access washroom
Patenaude lower-level washroom
Building exterior (location to be confirmed)
