Syringe disposal

We  will arrange the removal and disposal of needles, syringes and any other drug related items that are discarded within our communities and which pose a risk to public safety.

Please use the contact details provided to report discarded needles.

Needles will be removed within 2 hours if they pose a danger to the public or within 24 hours if made secure by the public. The needle can be made safe by carefully holding it by the blunt end and placing it in a clear bottle or container until it can be uplifted.
