Question

What happens to syringes and how do they get recycled?

Answer

Actually they don't anymore. Historically we did reuse syringes and those are the ones made of glass, but nowadays it's much cheaper to make them out of plastic. They then end up on the beach of course and Richard Thompson has to pick them up in his marine ecology studies.
