About this service
ADIO distributes clean injecting equipment and collects and safely disposes of used needles.
The safe disposal of injecting equipment is critical in protecting the wider community from the spread of blood borne viruses through needle stick injury from discarded needles and syringes.
We provide a range of equipment for exchange or purchase, including:
- Standard one-use syringes – in a range of sizes and gauges.
- Filters – to remove objects and bacteria from drug solutions.
- Sterile Water – to avoid bacteria in drug solutions.
- Alcohol swabs – for cleaning of injection sites, spoons and surfaces.
- Condoms and lube – for safer sex practices.
