Two sharps containers will be placed in Langley’s visitor center restrooms at the behest of Langley Police Chief David Marks.

Sharps containers are used for the safe disposal of needles.

Public Works Director Stan Berryman said at a Nov. 21 city council meeting that the containers are inexpensive and that more could be ordered and placed in other public restrooms such as at City Hall.

Police Chief David Marks said on Nov. 21 that police had found only one more needle since a Nov. 7 meeting.
