This year’s event was opened by Her Excellency Professor Marie Bashir AC CVO, Governor of New South Wales, at the Powerhouse Museum on 3rd December. The Community Sharps Management Award, which is sponsored by this program, was awarded to Riverina Eastern Regional Organisation of Councils (REROC) for Safe Sharps Version 2. The award is in recognition of the safesharps website and Smartphone apps, which enable users to search for the locations of single needle disposal points, sharps’ container disposal points or sellers of sharps’ containers.
