Junkies Not Good Recylcers

By che 17 March 2006 23

The CT has this story about nearly 5000 syringes being dumped in recycling bins across Canberra, putting the people who do the sorting of recyclables at risk.

Add to this the 3401 syringes that were were dumped in public places, and I get the distinct impression that Canberra’s junkies aren’t signing up to Canberras No Waste by 2010 drive.

PS if you ever find a syringe you can call the SHARPS Hotline on 132281

seepi, funny thing was, I was a year ahead of her at the same school and to my knowledge, not one person in my year hit the “hard stuff”.

I won’t name the school sorry.

Geez – what school did your sister go to?
It is a nightmare I know – I wish I didn’t. Hardest for the parents to deal with I think.
I rang the police to tell them about staff at a takeawy at Dickson dealing hard drugs and they realy weren’t interested at all. I laugh when I see Audrey Fagan promoting that police dob-in line. What sort of crimes are they after if hard drugs aren’t worth their while?

A perfect example is the Mental Health Crisis Team who deal over and over again with junkies who have taken a cocktail of drugs to write themselves off and end up in a drug induced psychotic episode while people who genuinely need help are made to wait.

DVD, I know all too well that scenario.

That’s why there’s no room in 2N or PSU.
