Timely

1

Free syringes in health centres/pharmacies

100% of health centres/pharmacies

Syringes are relatively inexpensive and delivery is local and centralised

June 2011 is the deadline for the beginning of this part of the plan.

2

50 Safe disposal containers in shopping centre

50 safe disposal containers in public washrooms and highly populated areas.

100 containers in total located at every shopping precinct, public washroom etc.

The safe disposal containers do not cost a lot to install, are unobtrusive to current facilities and there is already a workforce that can be commissioned to monitor them.

All containers should be installed by August 2011

3

Safe disposal containers for business' and individuals within the Maribyrnong City council

5,000 containers will be produced

Containers are not expensive to produce and a small fee will be charged for those wishing to receive one.

All pharmacies will have containers available by January 2012

4

The emptying of all public disposal containers

100% of containers need to be emptied and/or checked once a day

There is currently staff available to complete this job (maintenance staff at shopping centres, council workers etc.) so there is no need to establish a new team of people and this is only a very small addition to their current job.

This needs to begin as soon as the containers are installed.

5

Informative booklets/brochure outlining the importance of safe disposal of syringes for the community.

Through surveys the effectiveness can be measured. A 25% increase is expected between surveys.

The brochures can be readily available near the safe disposal containers and at pharmacies. They are cheap to make and don't require a lot of (if any) extra facilities.

The distribution of these brochures will begin in May 2011.
