Our needle exchange service is part of the harm minimisation program of the Victorian State Government and is the only such program in the Mornington area. Clients are able to receive clean equipment and return used needles and syringes for safe disposal. The volunteers who staff this service also provide education and referral to appropriate agencies. We also accept used diabetic needles, an area that has seen increased growth. The service receives diabetic needles but does not issue them.
The Needle Exchange is open Monday to Friday from 9am until 5pm.
There is no Needle Exchange Service on weekends! Please call the mobile service 1800 642 287 outside of business hours.
