Community Needle Pickups

The Department of Behavioral Health Services is committed to serving the community through the service of needle pickups. Our mobile unit picks a location 2-4 times each month, to properly dispose of syringes. You can view upcoming pickup locations on our Events section of the website. 

Mapping Needles

The Department of Behavioral Health Services is taking an active role with the mapping of needle pickups within Bernalillo County. The live heat map is a clear representation of our continued efforts to make Bernalillo County a safe place.
