McDonald's Manager Picks Up Two or Three Hypodermic Needles a Day
A manager at McDonald's restaurant at Terminal & Main in Vancouver commented that he picks up two or three needles a day left by drug users. The manager was chatting on Fri. Oct. 24th with a customer who had asked him to pick up a needle that a heroin user had just dropped on the floor. The manager fetched a plastic red and yellow "Bio-hazard" box and a pair of tongs from the back of the restaurant and picked up the needle.
McDonald's also picks up the expense for this. The manager said that it is the responsibility of McDonald's to drop off the used needles at a depot downtown.
