Hypodermic Needles, Syringes

Needles, syringes and other drug related items are being increasingly discarded in the environment.

There are a number of hazards associated with handling these items and if discovered you should contact us to have them safely removed and we will dispose of them.

We advise members of the public not to pick up needles, unless it poses an immediate danger to you or other residents. Please contact us for safe disposal.

Please note that any needles, or syringes, etc. found on educational premises (e.g. schools, nurseries, etc.) during working hours should be reported immediately to the premises directly where staff on site are trained to deal with such items.

If you wish to dispose of needles or "sharps" as a result of medical treatment that you are receiving, contact
