A bunch of used needles found carelessly on the street!

I parked my car in a very busy street in Jabriya… flats, taylors, restaurants, salons, stores, and gyms dotting the area and people parked in that street all the time to get to their destination on foot. As i got out of my car i saw a the crushed and apparently used needle above lying on the pavement and i shook my head in disgust. There is a protocol for disposing of used needles and they shouldn’t be crushed and lying on the ground no matter how it was used.

Only then did i notice that it was NOT the only one! I found two more by the edge of the pavements…

and then to my surprise there were more…




There were even MORE! What on earth is that? Who would be using that amount of needles? and for what purpose? and why are they dumbed there? It looks like a place to gather the garbage… where they disposed of there or where they in a plastic bag that was torn? What if someone was sick and injecting him self with insulin for example… shouldn’t be there a way to dispose of the needles properly? What if there were children who decided to play with them?

Eh hal fawtha!? This simply disgusts me! What do you think?

    Come on, I think you’re overreacting. Sure its not nice, bas kids shouldn’t be playing there in the first place, what they were glass shards? What if there was toxic waste?
    It looks like someone diabetic.. cuz the needles are long.

      Children could be playing anywhere… and they are also in the pathway of people who park their cars. If they are long and belong to a diabetic person, isn’t there a better place to dispose of the needles instead of throwing them by the dozen in the street?


  3. Steroids?

      Madry… steroids… maybe insulin injections, or maybe a salon uses them to botox foreheads or something… kil shay ysawoon hal ayam…


  4. omg, i dnt usually care but this is wrong! maybe its from one of the myriad of clinics overlooking the 4th ring road. its a disgrace because these can get ppl and yes children who play with ANYTHING sick.


  5. If ur next to a gym, then it makes sense…but u r right its disgusting and I cant believe its discarded in this form nonchalantly…first of all NOTHING should be discarded on the streets…streets should be clean, do people throw trash on their living room floors? Makes u wonder how people live at home :/


  6. Steroid and other deadly poisons injected into the oddly shaped bodies of our male youth are used in some Kuwaiti gyms 🙂 I wish someone would tell them they look too inflated and abnormal and is unattractive to most women!


  7. I doubt any professional clinic would dispose of there needles this way, medical waste is not a joke and not very hard job,

    It seems to me its either from some gym or waste of some drug addict.

    Drug addicts r all over the place o there r many mashboh places in Jabriya. I know this cuz I did a study on drug addicts in Kuwait in 2006.

      Drug addict? You know the thought crossed my mind but i said what drug addict would use 13 needles? unless it was the garbage of a group of drug addicts… there are many flats surround this piece of land but no medical clinics… are they really that stupid and careless?!


  8. Ambiah la2
    shno hatha ?
    what if some1 who used it had HCV O HBV ? what if some1 stepped on it & got the virus
    OMG this is just ridiculous

    Well, the police could run a test to see what was in the needles. If something like heroin, then they could have been dumped by some drug user. If steroids, then maybe someone from the nearby gyms. If something else, that might have given a clue as to who dumped them.
    If the police would even care, or even show up if called that’s another question.
    These things are dangerous, because one could catch diseases from them (anything transmitted through blood), or if kids picked them up they could hurt themselves.

      I don’t think anyone would bother calling the police over a bunch of discarded needle… and if they thought about it idoubt the police would spare a moment to come and check…let alone analyze the contents 😦
