No, not Miller Beer’s Sharp’s non-alcoholic “beer” beverage. Sharps as in biohazard sharps. Anyone who’s worked in a hospital or other medical facility is well aware of these disposal receptacles.
What’s odd is, I took this picture in the public restroom at our local public library. I know it’s probably there as a courtesy to diabetics who must give themselves insulin injections. Still, why here? Hopefully it’s not a response to crackheads leaving syringes around or something like that. I wonder who maintains it and is responsible for emptying it. How and where do they dispose of its contents?
Am I the only one who finds it odd to see a biohazard sharps container at the library?
