In honor of a fabulous pioneer of this program, the needle and syringe exchange is now called “Megan’s Place”. Every first and third Tuesday from 5-7PM at the SPH Training Center at 203 W. Pioneer Ave., anyone in need can confidentially dispose of used needles & obtain clean needles, access free resources and information including naloxone (overdose) kits, sanitary products, referrals for free HIV and Hepatitis C testing, fresh cookies, and MORE! Safe, confidential, and an incredible FREE community resource ran by a great team of discreet, helpful, trained volunteers.

You can call (907) 841-7204 or email homerexchange@gmail.com for more information.

Check out the Facebook page for All Things Addiction on the Southern Kenai Peninsula (formerly the Southern Kenai Peninsula Opioid Task Force) for more great info and to get involved.

Refer to this brochure for additional information on safe options for needle disposal (what should I do if I find a needle?).

South Peninsula Hospital will accept sharps on the second Wednesday of each month from 1 – 3 p.m. During this time only, sharps will be accepted from the public and only at the loading dock entrance, found on the lower level east side below the main entrance.
