BROOKLYN - Gravesend residents say that more syringes have turned up after needles were first found littering the sidewalks on Monday.

Tenants living at Avenue T and West 7th Street say they want to know who is responsible for dumping medical waste near their homes. They say the neighborhood needs to be cleaned up so that it's a safer environment for everyone.

The Department of Sanitation cleaned up the syringes on Monday and showed up again today to clear the trash. Workers say the syringes are likely used by diabetics and are not being properly discarded.
