Shipping costs are not based by percentage but more the item or shall we say vendor. Fitpacks, Daisytops and Sterifilts may be subject to residential fee for shipping charge. Additional shipping charges on cookers, safer smoking products, wall mounts and kiosks may be applicable to orders shipping to Hawaii and Alaska. Orders shipping to Alaska and Puerto Rico will be subject to an additional flat freight fee, email firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
We take any used syringes, no questions asked. However, as stated earlier, we are not a commercial syringe disposal service. If you are a business, e.g., pharmacy, medical practice, veterinary clinic, etc. that regularly generates sharps, you should contact a commercial biohazardous waste and/or sharps service to pick-up and dispose of your waste.
We provide a variety of support services, such as fiscal sponsorship, technical assistance, and when resources allow, program support packages to new and/or struggling SEPs. Unfortunately, we currently do not have the resources to provide financial support to SEPs.
We are always happy to add new programs to the NASEN Directory. Please complete a profile page found here: https://nasen.org/my-profile Please ensure you are the program administrator or have authorized permission to submit a programs information before completing this form.
We take/pick-up used syringes to ensure that they are disposed of properly. We are not a commercial syringe disposal service. If you are a business, e.g., pharmacy, medical practice, veterinary clinic, etc. that regularly generates sharps, you should contact a licensed commercial biohazardous waste and/or sharps disposal service (e.g., Stericycle) to pick-up and dispose of your waste.
Our Buyers Club Team is more than happy to assist in providing tracking on any of your orders. Please let a Team Member know you would like tracking (before the order has been placed) so that we may ensure that we can provide this for you. After placing the order we will provide you with the tracking number.

The web-site: https://safeneedledisposal.org/ is a great resource for syringe disposal locations and regulations. You can search by zip code or by state. If no disposal sites are nearby, this site also provides information for how to handle used sharps in compliance with state guidelines. Most SEPs will also take back syringes. You can find a fairly extensive listing of SEPs on the NASEN web-site.
We’d love to help SSPs in all states. Assistance is not based on the state in which an SSP is located. Assistance, information, fiscal sponsorship, T.A., etc. is available to anyone/SSP that requests it.
For personal use please contact NextDistro. If you are wanting to start a SSP/SEP, we encourage you to fill out a NASEN Buyers Club Application.
Any time an individual receives a new/unused syringe from some one or some place other than a syringe exchange program, that is secondary (syringe) exchange. A Secondary Syringe Exchange (SSE) is a place, or often a person, that distributes new/unused syringes that they received from a Syringe Exchange Program/Syringe Service program. Occasionally this is done in an official capacity, i.e., the individuals work with, or with the knowledge of, the local syringe exchange to act as a distribution point for harm reduction supplies. Sometimes this is done unofficially, e.g., a regular at the exchange picks up a few extra packs of syringes when they visit because they know other PWIDS that can't get to the exchange.
We recommend reaching out to an SSP closer to you for services if at all possible. Dallas Harm Reduction Aid would be a great choice in the Dallas, Texas area.
Yes, our local Tacoma Needle Exchange offers fentanyl test strips for our participants at our exchange locations. Please contact an outreach team member if you are located locally in Pierce County, WA and looking for fentanyl test strips. Our NASEN buyers club also sells fentanyl test strips and would be happy to discuss pricing with you. A team member can be reached at (253) 213-3221.
No. We are a member-based Buyers Club that supports Syringe Service Programs (SSPs) Health Department and other organizations who serve people that use drugs that operate under the Harm Reduction philosophy. This means only member organizations can purchase through our organization. In order to become a member organization one must first complete and submit a Buyers Club application. The application asks for information about your Exchange and to certify "the facts contained in this application are true and complete to the best of my knowledge and understand that, if accepted into the Buyer's Club, false, misleading or incomplete statements on this application shall be grounds for dismissal." We also conduct research and validation to make sure you are, in fact, a Syringe Service Program or an organization that works with SSPs. If we have any doubt, we'll ask for additional information and/or deny your application to join the Buyers Club. That said, could someone lie and potentially purchase supplies? Possibly, but why would they?
Unfortunately we are not able to schedule appointments for other SSPs through our website. We encourage you to reach out the program individually and apologize for the inconvenience.
No, we are not a (SIS) safe injection site. If you are looking for more information on safe injection sites I would consider reaching out to Insite, the first legal SIS site in North America at (604) 687-7483.
