For folks who take injectable forms of Hormone Replacement Therapy, you may have wondered what to do with the used syringes. Here is some information on how to dispose of your used syringes.
Home Disposal of Syringes
You can prevent contamination of our waterways by safely disposing of syringes at home, using a needle exchange program, or via a syringe disposal company.
Place sharps in a strong plastic bottle (e.g. bleach, liquid detergent) or metal container with a screw-on or tightly secured lid to prevent accidental contact with the waste.
Secure lid with duct tape.
Place sealed container in your regular trash.
Keep out of the reach of children and pets.
The Hazardous Materials Management Facility (HMMF) is currently accepting sharps from Boulder County, City and County of Broomfield, and Town of Erie residents free of charge during normal hours of operation
Sharps are NOT accepted by recycling programs. Do not put sharps in with the recycling, even if the container you use to seal them is recyclable, as this puts staff at the recycling center at risk.

Transformative Freedom Fund
Transformative Freedom Fund's mission is to support the authentic selves of transgender Coloradans by removing financial barriers to transitions related healthcare. Our application cycle is open January 1-April 1 of each year. We make funding decisions by June 15th of each year, and can start funding for that cycle immediately after an application is approved. We will fund any physical transition related healthcare from surgery, to hormones, office visits, electrolysis or laser hair removal, etc. for individuals who identify as transgender, gender nonconforming, non binary, gender queer, anyone who does not identify as cisgender. We do not currently provide financial support for mental health, but are more than happy to provide referrals for free or sliding scale options when available. We pay providers directly 100% of the time. Our priority areas for funding are trans women of color, older adults (60 and older), youth (up to 24), and folks facing significant safety concerns (living in rural areas, lack of consistent support systems, etc.). We do not require parental approval to fund youth, regardless of age, but will not provide payment to providers who are not reputable and licensed. Folks can apply every year for ongoing treatment needs, and are encouraged to apply again the following cycle if their application is not approved. We would love to be able to meet all the needs of our community, but unfortunately that is not a reality for us. At least not yet. If an individuals application is approved for surgery, but there is a waitlist that does not allow that individual to have surgery during that funding cycle, their approved amount will be held for them until their surgery date, or until they inform us that they no longer need the funds. We are always more than happy to answer any and all questions. Our email address is firstname.lastname@example.org and our website it transformativefreedomfund.org
You can also fund us on Twitter (@tffund), Instagram (@tffund), and on Facebook.
