EL SOBRANTE (KRON) — Hazardous materials crews have completed cleaning up medical waste found scattered on an El Sobrante street.
Officials say it appears as many as 2,000 hypodermic needles spilled from a bag in a vehicle on Santa Rita near Appian Way in El Sobrante.
Clean up crews say it appears the needles had been used. Since they had no idea what was inside the syringes so they treated as a medical and hazardous materials case.
While officials are confident they’ve found all of the needles, if people see any firefighters say they should call 911 and someone will come out to recover them.
