Needles and syringes should be disposed of safely using a sharps box, or other secure container. Sharps boxes can usually be obtained from your local pharmacy.

If needles/syringes are found on private properties it is the property owner's responsibility to ensure that they are removed.

If needles/syringes are found on commercial premises, contact the company directly as it is their responsibility to ensure that they are removed.

For needles or syringes found on the highway or council property, please report it immediately to Streetscene and we will arrange to have it cleaned up.
