Needle and syringe removal

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​If you see any hypodermic needles (sharps and syringes) please ring us immediately to report them. For your own safety please don't attempt to remove them or dispose of them in any bin as it's extremely dangerous and not acceptable. We aim to respond the same day. 

Report needle problems (opens in a new window)​

We're responsible for the collection and safe disposal of hypodermic needles (sharps and syringes) and other drugs paraphernalia that have been discarded on local authority land or other areas that are defined as open to the public.

We make a nominal charge for removing hypodermic needles and syringes from private land.

For further related advice or information please contact the Community Drugs Team.
